The incidence of metastases from basal cell carcinoma is rare. We report a 66-year-old woman who had basal cell carcinoma of the outer canthus of the left eye. Six months following radical radiotherapy, she developed local recurrence for which an orbital exenteration was done. Four months later, she developed rapidly-progressive multiple skeletal metastases and died soon after.
