A case report is presented of a 9-year-old boy with xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group C, who died from a squamous cell carcinoma arising from the tip of the tongue. Treatment with etretinate and in a later phase with indomethacin and prednisolone was not effective, except for a limited initial response of the tumour to etretinate.
