Abstract

The first report of a patient with metastatic bronchogenic carcinoma of the skin surrounding the abutment of a bone anchored hearing aid (BAHA) is presented. Complications of bone anchored hearing implantation have been well documented to date. We present a 68-year-old lady who presented with an unusual skin lesion surrounding the abutment of her BAHA. This was the first presentation of her bronchogenic tumour. We also review the literature regarding cutaneous metastasis and complications of BAHA.
