A case of metastatic basal cell carcinoma is the 20th recorded as having gone to bone. A new count of sites of metastasis showed bony involvement to be second to that of lymph node. This is the first reported patient in whom there was a history of radiation dermatitis preceding a malignant lesion resulting in death.
