Abstract

A 65-year-old man presented with an uncontrolled Merkel cell carcinoma on his chest that originated from his forearm. He previously had an amputation at the shoulder joint, but his disease recurred around his amputated stump and chest despite aggressive surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Palliative treatment with electrochemotherapy was administered with good response. Four months later, there was no recurrence of the disease.
