Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cutaneous malignancy and the most common human malignancy in general. Out of all basal cell carcinomas, giant basal cell carcinoma represents less than 1%. Only 10% of all basal cell carcinomas are located on the trunk and majority is located on the head and neck. We describe a patient with a exophytic giant basal cell carcinoma of the back size 8.5 x 8 x 6 cm, infiltrating skin 1.5 cm. Two years after the lesion has occurred, diagnosis was made by pathohistological analysis. The patent was treated surgically, by excision. Review of the literature that refers to giant basal cell carcinoma was carried out.
