Abstract

The coexistence of a basal cell carcinoma and a port-wine stain is a very rare condition that may be associated with previous treatments. We present a case of multiple basal cell carcinomas developing within the boundaries of a port-wine stain, which had been treated with a tholium X and argon laser. Our case suggests that port-wine stains which were previously treated with irradiation or argon laser should be examined carefully and regularly by both physician and patient, because they may hide basal cell carcinomas.
