Abstract

Merkel cell carcinoma is a rare, aggressive, highly metastatic, often fatal, primary neuroendocrine tumor typically located on sun-exposed skin. It is frequently found in white males aged 60 to 70 years. The somewhat typical benign clinical appearance of the lesion can result in a delayed diagnosis, leading to a less than optimal outcome.Level of Clinical Evidence: 4
