Extraocular sebaceous carcinoma as a rapidly growing back mass: a case report


Sebaceous carcinoma is a rare cutaneous malignancy that frequently mimics other dermatologic conditions. Extraocular subtypes are uncommon, but when present are frequently located in the head and neck region. Herein, we present a patient with a rapidly growing upper back mass eventually diagnosed as sebaceous carcinoma and managed with wide surgical excision. Currently, sparse literature exists to guide management of such patients. This case highlights not only the diagnostic challenges of sebaceous carcinoma, but also the need for further studies to investigate therapeutic interventions and long-term outcomes.
