Lobule like protrusion of basal cells confined to a nest structure originating from the Stratum Basale/ DEJ Peripheral boundary in superficial types is always more prominent on dermis facing side of nest DEJ alteration is always prominent in superficial nests Dermis protruding growth of the basal layer disrupts the expected undulating pattern of the DEJ […]
Basal Cell Carcinoma
Atlas of superficial basal cell carcinoma examples with companion histology and annotated scan frames where appropriate.
Nodular basal cell nests have minimal connection to the epidermis with the main nest mass primarily localised within the papillary dermis or superficial reticular dermis Nodular basal cell nests typically present as ovoid structures with a granular texture due to cell composition Hyporeflectivity due to the basal cells possessing less intracellular keratin All basal nests […]

Nests typically appear as smaller aggregations and micronodules Dispersed throughout the lower dermis Even small nests appear significant different in texture and reflectivity from the surrounding dermis (*) Adjacent nests can be connected by strands of basal cells causing an appearance similar to a bunch of grapes Due to the nature of the nests they […]
