In this study I have analyzed the most important parameters necessary for diagnostics of histopathological of basal cell carcinomas with the purpose of establishment of correlations between histopathological aspect, tumor localization, clinical data about patients and their ulterior evolution, for identifying new elements with prognostic level for BCC, also in reducing the number of recidivisms. Materials and methods: The study evolves a number of 703 cases of basal cell carcinomas diagnostics in the Pathological and Cytological Anatomy Lab of the Clinical County Hospital of Emergency of Craiova, during a 5 year period (1 January 2003 – 1 January 2008), worked by the standard paraffin inclusion and colorants with standard hematoxyline-eosin stain. Results and discussions: The report F/M was of 1.06 in favor of women. The most affected group age was between 51-70 years old, with 351 patients (49.92%). Localization of the most frequent BCC was at a cephalic extremity level (89.90%). The histopathological analysis of lesions of BCC has revealed a polymorphism extremely various. The histological type most frequently met was of BCC solid. Majority of lesions, yet have presented in one or more different regions. Majority of lesions have invaded hypodermic level – 20 cases (48.78%) and only 24 cases were recurrences (3.41%).Conclusions: The study has underlined the importance of pathological tumor dermatological malign both by a greater number of cases studied also through incidence of growth of basal cell carcinomas.
