The occurrence of cutaneous carcinoma in black patients is an unusual phenomenon, with basal cell carcinoma being particularly uncommon. We present five cases of basal cell epithelioma in black patients collected from the Texas Medical Center to graphically illustrate the varied and often atypical clinical presentations of such tumors. This report supports recent series of basal cell epithelioma in black patients derived from retrospective chart reviews.
