Abstract

Basal cell carcinoma is a malignant tumor of the skin that is believed to arise from the hair follicle. In addition to the typical lesion just described, several clinical and histological varieties are recognized. Polypoid basal cell carcinoma, a new distinctive form, has been described as verrucoid, fungating or polypoid mass with stalk and histologically distinguished by restriction of the tumor aggregation to the mass from the other variants. We report a case of basal cell carcinoma of right knee that was pedunculated and had stalk with lobulated surface.
