#634 Merkel Cell Carcinoma in a Nine-Year-Old Girl
Introduction: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) of the skin is a rare neuroendocrine tumor characterized by its rapid growth and aggressive clinical behavior. MCC is a typical tumor of older age (average age is 65 years). In children and adolescents less than 20 years of age, it is extremely rare. Information regarding MCC in childhood can be found in the literature only in the form of individual case reports. Due to the rarity of MCC in the young population, any clinical studies or treatment recommendations in these patients are missing.
