Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) metastasis incidence is rare and occurs in advanced, neglected, recurrent tumors or tumors with high risk histopathologic features like perineural invasion. The mainstay of management remains surgical excision with clear margins wherever possible followed by radiotherapy. We are presenting a case of metastatic BCC of an uncommon site i.e., anterior shoulder with metastasis to axillary lymph nodes and to review literature regarding the current standard of management.

Keywords: Metastatic basal cell carcinoma, regional node metastasis, high risk BCC, Radiotherapy.
