Abstract

It is uncommon for malignancy to develop in a sebaceous nevus before puberty. We report a case of basal cell carcinoma arising in a sebaceous nevus during childhood in a normal-appearing lesion. Periodic evaluation to detect malignant degeneration is recommended for children even if removal is encouraged at a future date.
