It is unusual to find a giant invasive basal cell carcinoma in the occipital region of the head. We are presenting a case of basal cell carcinoma invading and eroding occipital bone, managed with an unusual scalp reconstruction method. A 69-year-old female presented with a 16x19 cm diameter tumour in the occipital region. Preoperative biopsy revealed a basal cell carcinoma. A complete surgical excision of the tumour was performed in one-step surgery and tissue defect was reconstructed by a pedicle latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap. Our case shows that this distant pedicle flap is safe and reliable, and should be revised as the option for the occipital region reconstruction.
