A 69-year-old woman presented with a 2-year history of a slowly growing tumour on the nose. The clinical diagnosis was basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and a complete excision was performed. Histologically, the tumour had the general features of a BCC but with sheets and nests of cells with granular cytoplasmic changes in the centre of the lesion. A pathological diagnosis of granular cell BCC was made. On immunohistochemical examination, the tumour cells were Ber-EP4, cytokeratin AE1/AE3 and cytokeratin CAM 5.2 positive but S100 protein negative. Only the granular cells were CD68 antigen (monoclonal antibody KP1) positive.
