Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) account for the vast majority of non-melanoma skin cancers (75%) and well over 25 percent of all cancers diagnosed each year. BCC has a predilection for fair-skinned individuals but can occur in Latin American and African American patients. Treatment of this tumour revolves around surgical excision or radiation therapy. Surgical excision can be accomplished using a variety of techniques including curettage and electrodessication, Mohs’ surgery and wide surgical excision. A case of BCC occurring in a lady of hilly areas of Uttarakhand, India and was treated with wide surgical excision and repaired with nasolabial flap has been described here.
