Basal cell carcinoma or BCC, is a malignant epithelial tumor of the skin, usually seen in the head and neck. Most BCCs are slowly growing and behave in a relatively benign, nonaggressive fashion, but a few of them grow rapidly and infiltrates the structures beneath the skin. Because dentists routinely evaluate the head and neck region, this review will help and guide the oral health care providers to diagnose basal cell carcinoma at an initial stage and provide early treatment by referring them… Expand


Incidence of Basal Cell Carcinoma at Plastic Surgery Department of tertiary care hospital in Karachi
Clinical variety and age group of basal cell carcinoma in patients treated surgically in Pakistan are similar to those in literature in many aspects, and BCC was more in females and was more on the noses of patients. Expand
The management of basal cell carcinomas.
The mean intervals between the first dermatology clinic visit and definitive treatment by the dermatology and the plastic surgery departments were 62 and 129 days respectively, factors contributing to the delay included the frequent use of diagnostic incisional biopsies and the high referral rate from dermatology to the department of plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Basal Cell Carcinoma of the Buccal Mucosa in a Patient with Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome
Ber-EP4 expression by the oral tumor was distinct from both peripheral and intraosseous forms of ameloblastoma and was identical to cutaneous BCC in both sporadic and syndromic settings. Expand
Basal Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck Region in Ethnic Chinese
Reexcision of those with inadequate skin margins improved local tumour control and offered the best chance of cure in ethnic Chinese patients treated in a tertiary centre from 1999 to 2009. Expand
An unusual ostensible example of intraoral basal cell carcinoma
Observations support the inclusion of BCC in the differential diagnosis of appropriate oral mucosal neoplasms and suggest that conventional ameloblastomas did not show evidence of LOH. Expand
Giant Basal Cell Carcinoma
A case of a mutilating tumor, 28 × 25 cm in size, that destroyed the medial and lower abdomen of a 47-year-old caucasian male patient with a huge ulcerated lesion, known for its slow progression and the rarity of its metastasis is described. Expand
Basal cell carcinoma of the buccal mucosa.
The anatomical location, focal squamous (metatypical) features, and positive staining for Ber-EP4 support an origin from the basal cell layer of stratified squamous mucosa, which arose on the buccal mucosa of a 69-year old man. Expand
Morphoeic basal cell carcinoma of the face
The aim was to identify variables in the surgical management that might increase the rate of complete resection, and the use of frozen section analysis is an effective way of judging invasion of margins by mBCC. Expand

DVIN present diagnostic difficulty and considerable interobserver variation also exists, and it is suggested that Ki-67 and p16INK4A are useful for distinguishing DVIN and classical VIN 3, whereas p53 and CD1a are usefulFor distinguishing DVin and invasive squamous carcinoma. Expand
Risk and outcome analysis of 1832 consecutively excised basal cell carcinomas in a tertiary referral plastic surgery unit.
Overall basal cell carcinomas excision rates compared favourably with international reported standards but attention to a variety of surgical and histological risk factors may improve this further. Expand
