Abstract

We report the case of a 76-year-old Caucasian woman who attended our clinic with multiple keratoacanthomas. Radiotherapy was considered a viable and effective option in such an old patient, who could not be a good surgical candidate for number and distribution of the lesions, and for the age. After a 12-month follow-up, we observed the complete and global disappearance of the lesions; the patient was therefore very satisfied especially in view of the clinical outcome. According to our point of view, radiotherapy allows the physician to obtain a good oncological radicality and excellent cosmetic results too.
