URREGO-RIVERA, Flor Liliana  and  FAURA-BERRUGA, Cristina. Differential diagnosis of pigmented basal cell carcinoma. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.2, pp.166-170. ISSN 2386-8201.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cutaneous cancer in humans. BCC is locally invasive, aggressive, and destructive but slow in growing, and there is very limited (literally no) tendency to metastasize. Clinically, there are different types: nodular, ulcerating, pigmented, sclerosing, and superficial. We report a pigmented basal cell carcinoma case, which required differential diagnosis from other pathologies such as superficial melanoma, seborrheic keratosis and blue nevus, in which management and prognosis are different.

Keywords : Basal Cell Carcinoma, pigmented; Keratosis; Seborrheic; Malignant Melanoma; Nevus.
