A 73-year old woman consulted for this ulcerated tumor of her forehead. The main clinical diagnosis was a basal cell carcinoma
Dermoscopy confirmed easily the diagnosis, showing ulceration
and many blue ovoïd nests
.Blue ovoïd nests
(or blue-gray ovoïd nests
) are well circumscribed areas, larger than blue-gray globules
and often associate.
Their presence is a good dermoscopic sign for a basal cell carcinoma.
