ENEI, Maria Leonor; PASCHOAL, Francisco Macedo; VALDES, Gustavo and VALDES, Rodrigo. Basal cell carcinoma appearing in a facial nevus sebaceous of Jadassohn: dermoscopic features. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.4, pp. 640-642. ISSN 0365-0596. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962012000400023.
The nevus sebaceous of Jadassohn usually affects the face or scalp. It tends to evolve in three stages, and the final stage is characterized by the appearance of tumours. We present the case of a facial nevus sebaceous of Jadasshon in which a basal cell carcinoma developed. We also explore the diagnosis of this disease, which was established through dermoscopy, and propose using this technique in the clinical follow-up of this type of hamartoma, thereby allowing the early detection of cancer development.
