A 75-year-old female presented to our outpatient department with an ulcerative lesion on the face, gradually increasing for the last 4 years. Clinical examination revealed a large ulcer measuring ~ 6 × 8 cm, with raised, everted margins along with complete nasal destruction. The ulcer had involved the cheeks after eroding the entire nasal cartilage. [Figure 1]. Histopathological examination demonstrated an uncircumscribed tumor with islands of basaloid cells in the upper dermis exhibiting follicular differentiation. The entire thickness of the lower dermis was filled with identical follicular basaloid cells along with numerous ill-formed ductal structures representing abortive ductal differentiation, suggestive of microcystic adnexal carcinoma.{Figure 1}
