Özet

Xeroderma pigmentosum is a relatively rare systemic disease transmitted through an incomplete sex-linked recessive gene. It is characterized by malignant skin degeneration, One of the mast effective treatment choices for the malignant changes is full-face resurfacing with skin grafts. Grafts harvested from areas that have some freckles may show malignant degeneration by ultraviolet exposure. The authors present a patient whose face was resurfaced with a split-thickness skin graft and was admitted due to new tumor formation on her resurfaced face.
