Abstract

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common malignant tumor of the skin and usually seen on hair-bearing skin that is frequently exposed to the sun, especially on the face. Polypoid BCC, which is thought to be a new variant, is distinguished from other histologic types by having a stalk and by restriction of the tumor aggregation to the pedunculated zone. We report a case of polypoid BCC in a 73-year old man who had a skin-colored pedunculated papule in the perianal area mimicking soft fibroma.
