Abstract

Fibroepithelioma of Pinkus is considered to be a rare variant of basal cell carcinoma with well-defined histopathological features. Clinical diagnosis often requires differentiation from benign lesions such as acrochordon, intradermal melanocytic nevus, neurofibroma, seborrheic keratosis, and even malignant lesions such as amelanotic melanoma. Dermoscopy of this type of lesion is not extensively described in the literature, though it usually presents certain specific characteristics that suggest the diagnosis and, therefore, an appropriate therapeutic approach. We present 3 cases of fibroepithelioma of Pinkus, describing their clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathological features.
