“…Numerous types of trauma have been identified in connection with subsequent basal cell carcinoma formation. These include thermal burn scars, 4–13 vaccination sites, 14–25 chicken pox scars, 26 tattoos, 27 sites of blunt or sharp injury, 9,10,28–30 skin exposed to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, 31 scars of lupus vulgaris, 32 chronic stasis ulcers, 33 sites of frostbite, 34 a hair transplantation site, 35 lesions of epidermolysis bullosa, 36 a colostomy site, 37 and a gunshot wound 38 …”

“…5 An association between BCC and scar tissue has been noted in several reports. [6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19] The most common scar types associated with BCC are previous vaccination and small pox scars [6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16] while burn scars are associated with fewer. [17][18][19] Only five BCC cases arising from surgical scars have been reported in the literature we reviewed.…”

“…Murray and Cannon found six out of 42 cases of basal cell carcinomas that they reviewed arose in scars, [20], and a colostomy site [2 11. Basal cell carcinomas are the most common type of malignancy developing at the site of BCG [18,22,23] and smallpox [25-291 vaccinations. The mechanism is unknown.…”
