Basal-Cell Epithelioma Perstans: Basal-Cell Epitheliomas Developing in Childhood and Persisting into Adult Life Without Appreciable Alteration

Basal-Cell Epithelioma Perstans: Basal-Cell Epitheliomas Developing in Childhood and Persisting... Abstract The purpose of this article is to focus attention on a type of basal-cell epitheloma which persists from childhood into adulthood without appreciable change. During the past seven years I have observed three such cases, one of which is hereby reported. All were so similar from a historical and clinical standpoint that it suggests a specific type of basal-cell epithelioma. In no case was there evidence to suggest a recent malignant change in some preexisting lesion. The characteristic manifestations are a well-demarcated, circular, firm, smooth-surfaced, slightly depigmented papule. The tumor in all of my cases exhibited central depression. In a precursory review of the literature the only reference to similar cancers was found in the Society Transactions of the New England Dermatological Society.1 Dr. W. C. Lobitz Jr. presented a Caucasian woman, 34 years of age, who had a white papule on her right cheek References 1. Lobitz, W. C., Jr.: Basal Cell Epithelioma, Morphea Type , A. M. A. Arch.
