We describe a 10-year-old patient with naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) which was diagnosed when she was 3 years old. She has developed multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) over this time, in particular on her face and trunk. However, we are interested to report that at least two have resolved spontaneously over 2 years without any treatment. This phenomenon has not previously been reported and we believe that it could be important for understanding lesional biology and for future approaches to management.
