Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We report a case of a 72-year-old woman with a two year history of a plantar lesion. The clinical appearance, a nodular reddish irregular mass about 2 centimeters in diameter, suggested a tumoral lesion. Histologic examination revealed a basal cell carcinoma. The lesion was excised with no recurrence after two years of follow up. The clinical events, and the histological findings are briefly discussed.
