Abstract
Introduction: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer seen mostly in the sun-exposed parts of the body like over face, head, neck, nose, eyelids but the presence at covered areas is not uncommon. Adenoid type of BCC is the rare form with a very low malignant potential. Surgery is the recommended treatment modality.
Case Report: We present a case of 38-year-year old female who presented with a small lesion looking like a sebaceous cyst near the medial epicanthus of the eye. It was excised and proved to be adenoid type of basal cell carcinoma. The patient underwent complete excision and forehead rotation flap was taken to cover the defect.
Conclusion: Although the basal cell carcinoma is a non-melanocytic skin cancer; adenoid type of BCC is a rare histopathological variant which can morphologically present as pigmented nodule without any site predilection.

Keywords: Adenoid type BCC, Basal cell carcinoma (BCC), Non-melanocytic, Rare form of BCC, Skin cancer
