          A 65-year old man presented with two rounded red plaques with well-demarcated, thread-like pigmented borders about 2 cm diameter  involving the chest and back. Both lesions cured with twice daily applications of Efudix (5 FU) ointment for 8 weeks.
* The interesting and peculiar aspect in this case is the occurrence of two BCCs simultaneously and on covered part of the body (trunk) in a patient with no risk factor except his age.
