Nuclear palisading is a characteristic feature which is typically seen in neural tumours such as neurilemmoma, and also in some other tumours. We report here three patients with basal cell carcinoma who showed histological patterns similar to nuclear palisading. To our knowledge, this is the first such case report in the medical literature; we apply the term 'neuroid-type nuclear palisading' to these cases. In our patients, the spindle-shaped tumour cells were tightly packed and the nuclei were arranged uniformly to form this rare feature.
