Extra ocular Sebaceous Carcinoma is a rare malignancy when compared to Peri ocular variant and these are derived from sebaceous gland epithelium. The aggressive types of extra ocular sebaceous neoplasm are reported with lymph node and visceral metastasis associated with poor prognosis. Here we report a case of extensive cutaneous extra ocular sebaceous cell carcinoma confined to large area of scalp proven by Immunohistochemistry without intra cranial involvement, distant metastases or evidence of Muir-Torre syndrome.
