Hidden Basal Cell Carcinoma in the Intergluteal Crease.
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer and often is found in sun-exposed areas, particularly the head and neck. However, BCCs also can arise in unexpected locations. Intergluteal crease BCC is a rare finding and often can be overlooked. When promptly identified, prognosis is good. Being educated on the existence of BCC in this sensitive area can aid proper diagnosis. This sensitive area should be included in a thorough skin examination to avoid missing this treatable cancer. We report the case of an 83-year-old woman with a BCC hidden in the intergluteal crease.
