Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Basal cell carcinoma(BCC) exists in great variety. Adamantinoid BCC is one of the rare types of BCC. Histologically, the tumor masses are surrounded by a layer of cells in which the nuclei tend to palisade. Inside this layer, the tumor masses consist of cells with elongated nuclei and stellate cytoplasm stretched as thin, connection bridges across empty spaces, producing adamantinoid appearance. We report a case of adamantinoid BCC in a 49 year-old woman who had a single, asymptomatic, dusky erythematous to black colored nodule on her right jaw area.
