Pleomorphic basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a pathologic variant of BCC characterized by the presence of atypical appearing, mononuclear or multinucleated giant cells. The tumor usually presents as a nodule on the head or neck. We report a case of pleomorphic BCC with alopecia areata on the scalp in a 63-year-old woman. She had had a well circumscribed, black nodule on an alopécie patch for several months.
