Multiple blue-gray dots and globules are round, discrete, and well circumscribed structures that, in the absence of a pigment network, are highly suggestive of a basal cell carcinoma. These dots and globules usually do not form aggregates as seen in melanocytic lesions. They correlate with dermal aggregates of pigmented basal cell carcinoma and are similar to ovoid nests, but smaller .
