Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common type of nonmelanocytic tumor. Multiple BCCs are generally associated with heredo-familial conditions or syndromes, but in sporadic cases, multiple BCCs are relatively rare. They tend to occur in synchronous or metachronous manner, but in our setup, synchronicity is uncommon and metachronous BCCs are attributed mainly to reoccurrence. We present a case of dual BCC of face with synchronicity and different histopathology, treated with wide local excision using full-thickness grafting and V-Y advancement flap.
