Basal cell carcinoma originating from a nevus sebaceus on the scalp of a 7-year-old boy.
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) occurs rarely in children and is most often associated with an underlying condition that predisposes patients to the development of malignancy. There have been numerous reports of BCC developing after puberty in nevus sebaceus; however, such occurrences have rarely been described in children. We report a 7-year-old boy with BCC forming in a nevus sebaceus.
