Lymphedema: An early sign of rodent ulcer metastasis leads to timely intervention

Clin Case Rep. 2019 Jul 4;7(8):1551-1553. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.2285. eCollection 2019 Aug.


Basal cell carcinoma has a potential for early and late metastasis. Depending on the location of the primary site, the relevant lymphatic drainage routes have to be monitored. Regional lymph edema may be a first indicator for metastasizing disease.

Keywords: basalcell carcinoma metastasis; lymphedema; surgical intervention; ultrasound.
