Özet

Superficial basal cell carcinomas (BCC) comprise 9% to 11% of BCC, and are commonly found on the trunk or limbs. We report a case of a superficial BCC on the scalp that was misdiagnosed and treated as seborrhoeic dermatitis. Any erythematous plaque-type lesion of long duration must have superficial BCC considered in the differential diagnosis.
