Rodent ulcer of the left side of the face

Watercolour drawing of the head of a man showing a very extensive rodent ulcer of the left side of the face. The eye had been completely destroyed and the skin was involved from the side of the nose to within a short distance of the ear and from the eyebrow downwards over the whole of the cheek. The edges of the ulcer are much raised, especially over the lower part and outer part where the overgrowth is excessive.
