Linear Basal cell carcinoma: a case report.

Ichinokawa Y, Ohtuki A, Hattori M, Sadamasa H, Hiruma M, Matumoto T - Case Rep Dermatol (2011)

Bottom Line: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) presents with diverse clinical features, and several morphologic and histologic variants of BCC have been reported [Sexton et al.: J Am Acad Dermatol 1990;23:1118-1126].Linear BCC was first described as a new clinical subtype in 1985 by Lewis [Int J Dematol 1985;24:124-125].Here, we present a case of linear BCC that we recently encountered in an elderly Japanese patient, and review other cases reported in Japan.

Figure 2: Dermatoscopic examination revealed arborizing vessels, multiple blue-gray globules and large, blue-gray ovoid nests.

Mentions: She presented with a small, black nodule on the lateral side of her lower eyelid and another small, black nodule on the inner canthus. A linear lesion, 3 × 20 mm in size, was seen extending from the right lateral to the medial infraorbital crease, with a scar-like appearance (fig. 1). Dermatoscopic examination revealed arborizing vessels, multiple blue-gray globules and large, blue-gray ovoid nests (fig. 2). Laboratory tests showed no abnormalities in hematological parameters, and both family history and personal medical history were unremarkable.
