  • PCS Case - 1

     
  • Clinical History : A 62-year-old woman with pigmented plaque over the face


  • Gross: Basal Cell Carcinoma Hisopathological findings: Dermis shows well defined nodular masses or collection of basaloid cells with crowding of nuclei. There is fencing or ‘palisade-like’ arrangement of basaloid cells at the periphery of these masses. Basaloid cells are surrounded by ‘retraction spaces’ seen as clear clefts.


  • Microscopy : Basal Cell Carcinoma Hisopathological findings: Dermis shows well defined nodular masses or collection of basaloid cells with crowding of nuclei. There is fencing or ‘palisade-like’ arrangement of basaloid cells at the periphery of these masses. Basaloid cells are surrounded by ‘retraction spaces’ seen as clear clefts.

      Diagnosis - Basal Cell Carcinoma Hisopathological findings: Dermis shows well defined nodular masses or collection of basaloid cells with crowding of nuclei. There is fencing or ‘palisade-like’ arrangement of basaloid cells at the periphery of these masses. Basaloid cells are surrounded by ‘retraction spaces’ seen as clear clefts. Presence of melanin pigment amongst basaloid cell masses is suggestive of epidermal or epithelial origin of cells. Stroma surrounding these nodular masses is fibrovascular. Infiltrate is seen in the stroma. There are no mucin deposits. Note:- Presence of pigment does not qualify for pigmented basal cell carcinoma as melanin pigment is a common finding in BCC seen Asian people.

      Diagnosis - Basal Cell Carcinoma Hisopathological findings: Dermis shows well defined nodular masses or collection of basaloid cells with crowding of nuclei. There is fencing or ‘palisade-like’ arrangement of basaloid cells at the periphery of these masses. Basaloid cells are surrounded by ‘retraction spaces’ seen as clear clefts. Presence of melanin pigment amongst basaloid cell masses is suggestive of epidermal or epithelial origin of cells. Stroma surrounding these nodular masses is fibrovascular. Infiltrate is seen in the stroma. There are no mucin deposits. Note:- Presence of pigment does not qualify for pigmented basal cell carcinoma as melanin pigment is a common finding in BCC seen Asian people.
