A 57-year-old male with BSC in the right frontal and periauricular area, extended to dura mater, orbit, parotid gland and the external ear canal, underwent wide excision and primary reconstruction using FL graft for dura mater and two muscle flaps--pedicled temporalis and LDFF. Positive margins on dura mater and the mastoid bone required adjuvant radiotherapy.
