Vulvar Basal Cell Carcinoma of a 40 Years Old Black Woman: About a Case and Literature Review
ABSTRACT
Vulva Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is a rare tumor. It usually occurs in Caucasians at an advanced age. We present a case of vulvar BCC in an African patient under 40 years old with HIV infection successfully treated surgically. This presentation is exceptional because of age, race, and the immune status of the patient.
