The incidence of nonmelanoma skin cancer continues to increase. Surgical excision remains the best choice of treatment but the demand of patients is to have tissue-sparing approaches with good cosmetic results; these aims led to the development of novel therapeutic agents such as topical ingenol mebutate gel. We report the successful treatment with ingenol mebutate gel 0.05% of three pigmented basal cell carcinomas. Lesions were evaluated by dermoscopy and confocal microscopy before, during and after the treatment.
