Basal cell carcinoma is the most frequent neoplasm worldwide. It's a slow growing and locally aggressive tumor, but it has a metastatic potential estimated between 0,0028 and 0,5%.

A revision of the literature was also made. 3 cases with this unusual disease during an 11 years period. The first one died at 42 months of follow up. There are 2 patients on follow up, 1 of them has lung metastatic disease after 29 months of follow up, and the last one is free of disease with 92 months of follow up. Metastatic basal cell carcinoma is an unusual entity, thus everyone that is involved in it's treatment, must be aware of this in order to do an early diagnosis. Surgery associated to radiotherapy are the mainstays of treatment. This disease should be managed on national referral centers.
