It is reported the case of a female patient, who underwent epilation with ionizing radiations for tinea capitis when she was 6 years old. After 52 years it was observed the progressive onset of 10 flat and pigmented lesions on the scalp, diagnosed as pigmented basal cell carcinomas by means of histopathological investigation. Since traumatic or local irritative factors were lacking and since the role of sulight exposure was seemingly secondary, the clinical case is reliably explained as expression of the late oncogenic action of ionizing radiations.
