Abstract

Basaloid Squamous Cell Carcinoma (BSCC) is an unusual and high grade variant of Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) with a predilection for the upper aerodigestive tract. The cytomorphologic diagnosis of this tumour is challenging as it shares common cytomorphologic features with its differential diagnoses. However, a careful examination of the cytology can help in delivering a diagnosis of BSCC. In this case report we present the imprint cytology findings of histologically proven BSCC in a 60-year-old male who presented with an ulcerated lesion at the umbilical region.
