Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) of the caruncle are rare. We report a case of a primary BCC of the caruncle in a 74-year-old man who was seen with a medial interpalpebral lesion. He had a history of sun exposure and multiple malignant neoplasms of the skin. The lesion was excised and histological examination showed a BCC of the caruncle. The clinical history, examination findings, and histological features are given.
