Basal cell carcinoma is the most common malignant tumor in humans and mostly occur in elderly people, the

multiple risk factors lead to induction of it, sometimes these factors present in the same patient, here we report such
patient in whom multiple factors resulted in inducing the tumor, these include, the nose which is most common site
affected by basal cell carcinoma, scar at this site, trauma and possibility of platelet- rich plasma which has been
