Abstract We describe the occurrence of a giant squamous cell carcinoma in a patient receiving vemurafenib for the treatment of late melanoma mestastases. Although the development of keratoacanthomas and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) has been described during vemurafenib therapy, most of the reported cases are treated with surgical excision. In the present case, SCC regressed after drug withdrawal.

Although the development of keratoacanthomas and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) has been described during vemurafenib therapy, most of the reported cases are treated with surgical excision. In the present case, SCC regressed after drug withdrawal.
