The least common form of basal cell carcinoma is the morphoeic basal cell carcinoma. The cancer develops as white scar-like lesions on the skin, usually on and around the face.

As rare as this version of basal cell carcinoma is, it is also the most disfiguring and invasive form, as it may infiltrate the nerves of the skin , and spread beyond the skin layers.
