Detecting basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) early and at relatively small sizes may expand therapeutic choices and enable less invasive treatment options. To this end, dermoscopy is a useful tool to diagnose BCC at early stages with high sensitivity and specificity.1 Superficial BCCs have been shown to be independently associated with location on the trunk and extremities and nodular BCCs have been independently associated with a head/neck location.2,3 Few studies have evaluated dermoscopic variation in BCC morphology as a function of anatomic location and pigmentation status.4,5 Herein, we evaluate BCC dermoscopic morphology based on pigmentation status and anatomic location.
