Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a common condition and various internal and environmental predisposing factors to BCC are described in the literature. Basex-Dupré-Christol Syndrome (BDCS) is one of the rare syndromes that predispose a patient to BCC. In these patients, BCC may be seen at a younger age, in multiple foci and with a more aggressive course. Our data show that close follow up of BDCS patients is essential. Careful observation of a simple BCC excision case can yield valuable clues for the diagnosis of a syndrome that will benefit from close follow up. We present a patient with a simple BCC lesion who was diagnosed with BDCS as a result of careful observation and investigation.
