“…Our 51 patients were almost equally men and women, which makes our group different from those of previous studies, in which there were preponderances of women (see Table 1). 1–3 The average age of our patients was 57.5 years, with a range from 30 to 89 years. No patient had more than one morpheaform basal‐cell epithelioma and in 38 (75%) that one was the only skin cancer on them.…”

“…The morpheaform basal‐cell epithelioma has been aptly referred to as the “iceberg epithelioma.” 2 Infiltrating ribbons and tentacles of neoplastic cells grow in them laterally and deeply away from the main neoplastic mass in a manner that is completely undetectable by gross means. That we found subclinical extensions of 7.2 mm beyond our clinically estimated borders attests to this fact.…”

“…Among the BCCs, MBCC is the most difficult form to cure. This is mainly due to the poor definition of the borders of the lesion (‘iceberg epithelioma’) and to the diagnostic delay caused by its slow growth and the often deceptive clinical appearance. Such features of the neoplasm influence therapeutic results so that they appear worse than those obtained in the other forms of BCCs .…”

“…The patient described here presented with some typical features of morpheaform BCC. These inelude: occurrence mainly in the head and neck region, a clinical appearance characterized by an indurated, flat or depressed, smooth, shiny, atrophic, porcelain‐colored plaque with indistinct borders, and the lack of a typically rolled, pearly border usually seen in nodular BCCs 7 …”
