A 64-year-old woman had a slowly increasing tumor in the parietal area, 35×20mm in size, an indistiict border, and elastic hard for four or five years, poor in mobility with a lower bed. We removed it surgically from the periosteum. Histologically, the tumor consisted of three kinds of tumor components as follows: 1. irregular nests which comprise squamoid cells in the upper to middle dermis, 2. substantial nests which comprise clear cells in the middle to lower dermis. 3. small nests which comprise cells having a circular nucleus and poor cytoplasm in the middle dermis to the galea aponeurotica. They have slight nuclear atypia, but no mitosis. Because of perineural infiltration, and infiltration of the galea aponeurotica, we performed an additional excision of the periosteum and the skull shell. One year and 6 months after the operation, no recurrence has occurred. [Skin Cancer (Japan) 2007; 22: 27-31]
