Abstract


Basal cell carcinomas arising on the genitalia and over 5 cm in size are exceedingly rare.
We report a case of a 60-year-old man with a lesion on the scrotum which had been slowly enlarging over the previous year. On examination he had an erythematous plaque 6.0x5.0cm in size with a pedunculated nodule. We performed an incisional biopsy. The histopathological diagnosis was basal cell carcinoma. The tumor was surgically removed.
This is the second reported polypoid basal cell carcinoma occurring on the scrotum but the first scrotal giant polypoid basal cell carcinoma.
