Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma, although rare, is the commonest malignant neoplasm of the nasal vestibule, which is a region covered by modified hair-bearing skin. The other two important malignant neoplasms of the skin, malignant melanoma and basal cell carcinoma, also occur here, but with less frequency.
