We present a case of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the nail unit with a special emphasis on superficial multicentric
histopathologic type with jagged borders that was treated with Mohs micrographic surgery. Nail unit BCCs may not be as
rare as previously believed and jagged borders in the superficial neoplastic buds may be a hallmark for superficial BCCs of
the nail unit.
