Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most widespread malignancy among all malignancies. It constitutes 65%–80% of non-melanoma skin malignancies. Although there is no universally accepted classification for BCC, there are at least 26 different defined subtypes, which can all be very difficult to recognize. The best-known variants of BCC are nodular, superficial, morpheaform, and infiltrative types. In this report, we describe a patient who was referred for surgery with the diagnosis of cystic BCC by preoperative dermoscopy. Herein, we present a rare form of nodular cystic BCC due to its importance in improving the knowledge of dermoscopy and surgery.

Keywords: Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma, dermoscopy, non-melanoma skin cancer.
