Abstract: Squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck is common in all parts of the world. There are many pathologic subtypes which differ in histology and prognosis. Large tumors, deeper invasion, perineural involvement, recurrence and immunosuppression are associated with poor prognosis. The mainstay of treatment is surgery with adjuvant radiation therapy as needed for aggressive tumor. The use of Moh’s micrographic surgery has become increasingly useful and has shown high success rates. Here, we present a case of squamous cell carcinoma of the forehead managed with surgical excision and resurfaced with a transposition flap cover.
