Abstract

Basal cell carcinoma(BCC) is a most common malignant tumor of the skin and has many different clinical and histological appearances. Polypoid BCC is a new clinicopathological variant of BCC. Polypoid BCC is clinically distinguished by being pedunculated and having a stalk that connects it to the skin surface. Histologically, it is distinctive in that the tumor aggregations are restricted to the exophytic polypoid zone. We herein report a case of polypoid BCC in a 39-year-old man who had a single, asymptomatic, black-brownish, pedunculated mass on his right temple.
