	abstract = {The effective incidence of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the skin (cSCC) is unknown, in general cSCC is the second most common skin cancer, accounting for 20% of all cutaneous malignancies, with a continuous increase in its frequency (1). The skin of the thorax is a very rare localization for this kind of tumor (1-4). Despite cSCC is a malignant proliferation of keratinizing cells of the epidermis, generally, when the diagnosis is made, early surgical resection with adequate surgical margins is curative in more than 95% of the cases (5). Here we present a very rare case of local recurrence of a huge cSCC involving the anterior chest wall that underwent extensive chest wall resection associated to complex reconstruction by using a combination of synthetic materials and autologous flaps.},
