We report the unusual case of a young child who developed an idiopathic basal cell carcinoma (BCC). The patient was otherwise healthy, with no history of excessive sun or radiation exposure or any predisposing factors for nonmelanoma skin cancer. This is a rare case that exemplifies the need for pediatricians and dermatologists to be aware that BCC may occur in children, even if they have no predisposing factors.
