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 3: Biopsy specimens (H&E staining) demonstrating typical nodular and infiltrative types of linear BCC. Nodular tumor with peripheral palisading.

Mentions: The tumor region was completely excised with a 3-mm margin. Histologically, in the 2 nodules, nests of atypical cells resembling epidermal basal cells were present in the dermis, and some of the nests were contiguous with the epidermis. In the lateral nodule, the nests mainly appeared in a nodular arrangement, while in the median nodule, infiltrative arrangement was mainly noted. Subsequently, basal cell carcinoma (BCC), nodular type in the lateral lesion and infiltrative type in the median lesion, was diagnosed. In the linear area between the 2 nodules, the presence of BCC nests was sporadically noted, thus the typing of BCC was not performed in that area (fig. 3, fig. 4). On the basis of these clinical and histopathological findings, namely both nodular and infiltrative BCC, the patient was diagnosed as having linear BCC.
