We report the case of a 35-year-old male patient managed for extended basal cell carcinoma of the median forehead, invading the frontal bone. Bone reconstruction was performed by a splitting of calvaria and skin reconstruction was performed using two frontal flaps dissected into complete vascular island, covering a skin defect of about 8cm in diameter (including safety margins). Wound healing was achieved after 4 weeks despite a median area of suffering and a temporary leak of cerebrospinal fluid of favorable evolution. The result at 5 years was excellent, with the patient's return to normal daily life and total satisfaction.Le texte complet de cet article est disponible en PDF.
