Nonsyndromic giant basal cell carcinoma with follicular differentiation and multifocal localized basal cell carcinoma.

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common malignant tumor of the skin. The most important feature is its very slow growth rate. It takes many years to reach gigantic dimensions. Various syndromes have been defined in which basal cell carcinoma exists in multiple localizations in a single patient. A case of basal cell carcinoma with multiple localizations and gigantic dimensions which is not classified as a syndrome is described in this case report.
