    Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) previously called trabecular cell carcinoma, is an uncommon cutaneous cancer. Mostly located in the skin of the head and neck. Overall prognosis for patient with MCC is favourable for long term survival even after recurrence. Prognosis depends on stage of presentation. However, elective neck dissection adds to relapse-free survival.
