Figure 2: (a) Sections from nodules over the right cheek and dorsum of nose showed features of basal cell carcinoma. (b) Sections from ulceroproliferative growth over the left cheek showed invasive islands of pleomorphic squamous epithelial cells with keratin pearls infiltrating the underlying stroma with focal collections of lymphocytes. (c) Sections from ulceroproliferative growth over the right leg showed surface stratified squamous keratinized epithelium with invasive islands of polygonal tumor cells with prominent nucleoli and intracellular melanin pigment.
