A giant cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma in adolescent: A case report and a brief literature review.

Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is very rare skin pathology in children and adolescents, most of the cases reported in the literature are small lesions that occur under predisposing conditions. Here we report a rare case of a teenager with a huge tumor without predisposing factors. The patient presented at Hassan II University Hospital with a huge mass with active bleeding. The imaging showed a locally advanced mass invading the scapular humeral joint, with lung metastasis. Histology revealed a cutaneous epidermoid carcinoma. Hemostatic radiation therapy has been performed followed by a systemic chemotherapy based on a platine regim.

The aim of this paper is to describe the clinical and radiological particularities of a very challenging case of a young patient with a skin squmous cell carcinoma.
