Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 60-year-old man, who had received living-donor renal transplant, who presented with a mass dorsum in the right hand. Biopsy of lesions revealed well-differentiated infiltrating squamous-cell carcinoma. Surgical excision of the lesion was conducted in the hand and the full-thickness skin grafts from the volar aspect of the ipsilateral forearm were placed over the large defect. The patient started range-of-motion exercises four weeks after surgery.
