Basal cell carcinoma is the most frequent skin cancer. It is observed mainly among elderly. We report a healthy 77-year-old Libyan man who presented with numerous pigmented basal cell carcinomas on his scalp. He had no history of irradiation, arsenic intake, or exposure to chemicals. There was no family history of skin cancer, xeroderma pigmentosum, or basal cell nevus syndrome. This is unusual case report of non-familial nonsyndromic multiple pigmented basal cell carcinomas in a Libyan man without any predisposing risk factors.
