Primary cutaneous adenoid carcinoma of the scalp

Meike Keck, Klaus Ueberreiter, Ursula Tanzella, Dietrich Doll & Björn Dirk Krapohl
Primary adenoid carcinoma are rare skin tumors. We present a 75-year-old female with this primary cutaneous tumor of the scalp with additional bone involvement. Wide scalp excision with bone enclosure, latissimus-dorsi-free-flap defect overage, and subsequent radiation slowed down the disease but could not prevent further skull infiltration.
