REVIEW
Yingyun Shi, Renbing Jia, Xianqun Fan
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a common malignant tumor throughout the world. One of the known risk factors of BCC is intense exposure to ultraviolet radiation. More than 50% of BCCs of the eyelid initially occur on the lower lid. The gold standard of diagnosis of BCC is histopathology. Treatment options for BCC consist of surgery, vismodegib, radiotherapy and imiquimod. Surgical excision using Mohs micrographic surgery or wide surgical excision with frozen section margin control is the first consideration for treatment of periocular BCC...

Red dot basal cell carcinoma is a unique variant of basal cell carcinoma. Including the three patients described in this report, red dot basal cell carcinoma has only been described in seven individuals. This paper describes the features of two males and one female with red dot basal cell carcinoma and reviews the characteristics of other patients with this clinical subtype of basal cell carcinoma. A 70-year-old male developed a pearly-colored papule with a red dot in the center on his nasal tip. A 71-year-old male developed a red dot surrounded by a flesh-colored papule on his left nostril...

Importance: Outlier physician practices in health care can represent a significant burden to patients and the health system. Objective: To study outlier physician practices in Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) and the associated factors. Design, Setting, and Participants: This retrospective analysis of publicly available Medicare Part B claims data from January 2012 to December 2014 includes all physicians who received Medicare payments for MMS from any practice performing MMS on the head and neck, genitalia, hands, and feet region of Medicare Part B patients...

Non-melanoma skin cancer incidence is rising worldwide. The leading neoplasias are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. We report on an 88-year-old female patient with a rapidly grown, symptomless, exophytic tumor of the supraclavicular area. Examination at the dermatology department has revealed a firm, exophytic, reddish tumor covered by crusts, about 4 cm in diameter and easily movable to the ground. The tumor was removed by delayed Mohs surgery (R0 resection). The resulting defect was closed by tissue expansion...

BACKGROUND: Adnexal carcinomas (ACs) are rare cutaneous malignancies of sweat gland or pilosebaceous origin. Optimal treatment and metastatic potential of AC are poorly defined. Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) has been increasingly used to treat AC. OBJECTIVE: To review selected primary cutaneous AC and their treatment outcomes with MMS. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Literature review using PubMed search for articles related to primary cutaneous ACs...

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most prevalent malignant tumor in humans and the local destruction of tissue that can result from excision has a significant impact on well-being. Treating BCC is costly for health care systems given the high incidence of this tumor, especially in older patients. Standard treatment involves either resection with histologic assessment of margins or Mohs micrographic surgery. Surgery is sometimes contraindicated, however, due to the presence of significant comorbidity or high cosmetic expectations...

BACKGROUND: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) typically affects the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. The subcutaneous variant is rare. OBJECTIVE: We sought to characterize the subcutaneous DFSP (SC-DFSP) variant and compare it with cutaneous DFSP (C-DFSP). METHODS: This work was a retrospective study of DFSP treated in our institution. RESULTS: Of 124 cases of DFSP, 18 were SC-DFSP (14.5%). Except for the deep location, the pathologic and genetic features were indistinguishable from the C-DFSP variant...

BACKGROUND: Lower extremity wounds present a major clinical challenge. OBJECTIVE: This paper introduces a new multistep approach for improved aesthetic and functional outcome for lower extremity wound closure after Mohs micrographic surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this prospective case series, 12 consecutive patients undergoing Mohs micrographic surgery for cutaneous malignancies of the lower extremities underwent closure assisted by elastic bandages, proper positioning with 45° flexion of the knee, buried vertical mattress sutures, and careful eversion, using a premium angled stapler...

Micrographic surgery is currently the only technique which ensures complete removal of basal cell carcinomas. The major limitation is the high set-up cost, which is particularly connected with specialized training of surgeons, technicians and the set-up of a histology facility for frozen tissue sectioning and staining. In the long run, however, the cost of Mohs surgery per patient does not exceed that of conventional surgery. The technique is very safe and has multiple advantages over any other treatment modality...

A 68-year-old gentleman presented with a lesion that resembled a pyogenic granuloma in his inferior fornix. The lesion was excised and biopsy demonstrated a proliferation of malignant spindle cells. Three weeks following initial excision, the lesion recurred and was removed via wedge excision of the eyelid. Definitive clearance was achieved through Mohs micrographic surgery. The patient received adjuvant postoperative radiotherapy and remains disease-free. This case demonstrates the need to consider sinister pathology in the setting of recurrent periocular lesions...

Importance: The best surgical treatment modalities for subungual squamous cell carcinoma (SUSCC) without bone invasion need to be determined. The limited available data on Mohs micrographic surgery do not demonstrate its use as a standard procedure. A previous study in a limited series of patients has shown that wide surgical excision of the nail unit was associated with a low rate of recurrence. Objectives: To confirm the efficiency of wide surgical excision of the nail unit with full-thickness skin graft reconstruction on a series of patients with SUSCC with an extended follow-up and to evaluate short- and long-term postoperative morbidity and patient satisfaction...
