Abstract

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common malignant skin cancer diagnosed in the United States. We present the case of a 67-year-old man whose knee pain and tumor of 2 years' duration was initially diagnosed as a dermoid cyst and bursitis. Dermatology referral confirmed a delayed diagnosis of BCC. This case provides insight into the range of BCC presentations and reminds clinicians to consider BCC when the differential diagnosis includes a dermoid cyst and bursitis.
