Abstract: Basal cell carcinoma is the most common skin cancer. It is derived from the basal layer of the epidermis. Exposure to UV radiation is the most common cause. Pigmented variant of basal cell carcinoma is very rare. Pigmentation makes it difficult to differentiate from malignant melanoma or seborrheic keratosis. Here we shall observe three different cases that showed features indicative of pigmented basal cell carcinoma in a tertiary care hospital.
