Abstract. Basal cell carcinomas are uncommon in black patients, and morpheaform basal cell carcinomas are an uncommon histologic subtype. This case report describes the rare occurrence of a morpheaform basal cell carcinoma in a relatively young black patient. This patient underwent Mohs micrographic surgery as the primary therapy for this tumor. Some features of morpheaform basal cell carcinomas are reviewed, and basal cell skin cancer in blacks is discussed. 1988 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Inc.
