A 48-year-old man consulted for a keratotic lesion that had appeared on a radiodermitis. Radiotherapy had been performed 44 years before for an hemangioma on his right scapular area. Because of the occurence of this hyperkeratosis, a dermoscopy was performed in the aim to diagnose a possible basal cell carcinoma. Dermoscopy revelead a crust and large tortuous vessels, but no signs in favor of a basal cell carcinoma. A biopsy was performed and revealed only signs of chronic radiodermatitis.
