The clinical differential diagnosis of violaceous plaques on the face is broad and includes both neoplasms and inflammatory dermatoses. We report the first case of a basal cell carcinoma (BCC) superficial to an underlying granuloma faciale (GF). This is a single case report with clinicopathological correlation. Histological examination of a skin biopsy from the cheek revealed superficial BCC and GF. This case constitutes the first reported finding of coincident GF and BCC.
