Primary basal cell carcinoma of the nipple.

Author information

Deprtment of Pathology, St John Hospital and Medical Center, Detroit, Mich 48236, USA.


Basal cell carcinoma arising from the nipple of the breast is an uncommon malignancy, with only a handful of cases reported in the literature. The diagnosis is, however, important because basal cell carcinoma in this location can mimic breast cancer, may behave aggressively, and there is a relative lack of consensus in its treatment. A case of basal cell carcinoma of the nipple is described in a 67-year-old man with a brief review of the literature.
