Abstract

BACKGROUND: Differences in age, site, and histopathologic subtype exist in basal cell carcinoma (BCC). OBJECTIVE: To compare the distribution of BCCs in patients younger than 40 with that of those aged 90 and older according to sex, site, and subtype. METHODS & MATERIALS: One hundred seventy-five BCCs were examined. The site was classified as head and neck, trunk, or limbs and the subtype as nodular, superficial, or morpheic-infiltrative. RESULTS: Younger exhibited a lower prevalence of BCCs on the head and neck (36.0% vs 57.3%, p
