Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most frequent, slow–growing, and potentially locally aggressive neoplasm of skin that rarely metastasizes. Incidence of BCC is high, but metastatic BCC is extremely rare. When metastasis develops in this group of disorder, it generally occurs to the lymph nodes, lungs, and bones. Metastasis to brain is extremely rare among all these. Herein, we report a case of BCC primarily of head-and-neck region which over a period of time metastasized to the brain. In this case, solitary brain metastasis was operated and whole brain radiotherapy was offered. Although BCC itself being a common, the case of metastasis of BCC is a very rare as a disease entity and rarest because of the metastatic involvement of the brain.
