Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a cutaneous, locally invasive, epidermal malignant tumor generally considered to originate from pluripotential immature cells of the epidermis and thus able to differentiate towards any of the epithelial skin structures. It is composed of cells similar to those in the basal layer of the epidermis and its appendages. Even though this tumor metastasizes only exceptionally [1], it causes considerable morbidity and costs to health services [2]. © 2009 Springer US.
