Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a malignant tumor of epithelial cells that is composed of cells similar to those in the basal area of the epidermis and its appendages. Ninety- five percent of individuals with BCC are between 40 and 79 years old. It rarely occurs in younger individuals. Herein, a 20- year- old woman with type III skin, who had a BCC on her chin is presented. Since the clinical features and age of onset of this lesion were not typical for BCC , correct diagnosis was confirmed by histological examination.
