  • We report a case of osteomyelitis complicating Mohs' surgery for recurrent basal cell carcinoma of the forehead. The need for immediate versus delayed repair after this type of surgery is discussed. It is evident that open, bone-exposed defects allowed to heal by secondary intention require meticulous wound care and follow-up.
