Abstract

A giant basal cell carcinoma of the vulva is reported. The lesion was atypical in its large size and gross morphology, therefore making clinical diagnosis difficult. Diagnosis of this lesion is often delayed because of its varied clinical appearance. The importance of adequate biopsy and careful pathological evaluation of vulvar lesions is stressed. Differentiation from metatypical or basosquamous cell carcinoma is discussed, and proper therapy is reviewed.
