Basal cell carcinoma is the most common skin cancer in which UV exposure is the main etiological factor. The incidence of basal cell carcinoma rises with age and disease is common between the 40-80 years of age. Tumors may be more than one. But, multiple tumors at same time are infrequent and usually they are a part of a syndrome. Herein, reported two cases with multiple basal cell carcinomas on the face. However, no symptom of any known syndrome was observed, in both. To best of our knowledge, a few case reports of nonsyndromic multiple BCC exist in the literature. Since increasing effect of ultraviolet-B with aging may cause multiple tumors, the follow up of these patients is important.
