Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma (BSCC) is a high grade variant of Squamous Cell Carcinoma with a predilection for the aero-digestive tract. The typical microscopic features of carcinoma with a basaloid pattern in intimate association with a squamous component helps in diagnosis of this tumour. There are few reports in the Indian literature and we report three cases, including one in the sinonasal region. This study discusses the differential diagnosis of BSCC, as recognition of this tumour may have therapeutic implications.
