Basal cell carcinoma represents the most common human malignancy, accounting 80% of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSK). The term “locally advanced” indicated the forms infiltrating the surrounding tissues, such as muscle, cartilage and bone. We report a case of 74-year-old man with a recurrence of a basal cell carcinoma of the right frontal region infiltrating the underlying bone tissue. The authors describe the surgical technique, with a focus on the multidisciplinary approach of the case and critically evaluating the possibilities offered by surgical treatment, its limits and the risk/benefit ratio in the new “era Vismodegib”.
