The authors describe an uncommon clinical case: the appearance of a basal cell epithelioma and a melanoma metastasis in the same clinical lesion. After a review of the literature mainly focused on growth factors, epithelioma released enzymes and melanoma metastasis tissue microenvironment, the authors suggest a possible not fortuitous association between the two pathologies.
