Squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most frequent cutaneous carcinomas, this neoplasic process inducing cellular and umoral immune response modifications. Our study refers at 60 patients, squamous cell carcinoma diagnosed, at whom we determined IL-2, IL-6 and TNF-alpha, using ELISA technique. The discovered results were different, depending on the differentiation form. The cellular immune response presented important modifications only in poor differentiated form of the disease.
