BACKGROUND: The elderly population is increasing and more patients in this group undergo Mohs micrographic surgery. The few publications investigating MMS in elderly people conclude that it is a safe procedure; however, these are single centre studies without a comparison group. OBJECTIVE: To compare the characteristics of patients, tumours, MMS, and one-year follow-up in patients younger than 80 years, with patients older than 80 years at the time of surgery. METHODS: Data was analysed from REGESMOHS, a prospective cohort study of patients treated with MMS...

Millimeter waves have recently gained attention for the evaluation of skin lesions and the detection of skin tumors. Such evaluations heavily rely on the dielectric contrasts existing between normal and malignant skin tissues at millimeter-wave frequencies. However, current studies on the dielectric properties of normal and diseased skin tissues at these frequencies are limited and inconsistent. In this work, a comprehensive dielectric spectroscopy study is conducted for the first time to characterize the ultra-wideband dielectric properties of freshly-excised normal and malignant skin tissues obtained from skin cancer patients having undergone Mohs micrographic surgeries at Hackensack University Medical Center...

Importance: Same-day Mohs reconstructive surgery is not always possible; moreover, a delay can offer benefits such as improved surgical planning and increased blood supply to the cauterized wound bed. However, recent work found that delaying reconstruction by more than 2 days increases the postoperative complication rate. Objective: To review the outcomes of Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) reconstruction with respect to patient- and surgery-specific variables, especially timing of repair...

BACKGROUND: Skin cancer commonly occurs on areas that are salient to body image perception (i.e., head and neck). Patients with head and neck skin cancer (HNSC) may experience negative body image perceptions related to their disease, which is concerning, given the numerous negative sequelae of poor body image. However, there are no existing disease-specific measures of body image concerns in HNSC. OBJECTIVE: To develop and examine the psychometric properties of a brief self-report, disease-specific measure of body image concerns in patients with HNSC-the Body Image Questionnaire (BIQ)...

BACKGROUND: Nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSCs) of the ear are considered high risk. Precise location of tumor sites is important when identifying surgical treatment sites. OBJECTIVE: Review precise locations and histopathologic subtypes of auricular NMSC treated with Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) using a standardized topographical numbering system for rapid data extraction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Using a MMS topographical number system, the author performed a retrospective chart review of 649 consecutive patients treated with MMS at Mayo Clinic for primary cutaneous basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) or squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) of the ear...

BACKGROUND: Mohs surgery (MS) is regarded as one of the most efficient surgical procedures for the treatment of skin tumors. OBJECTIVES: Delineating tumor margins accurately is important in limiting broad excisions during conventional surgery and in reducing the number of stages during Mohs procedure. METHODS: This study aimed to evaluate the role of 2 simple procedures, curettage and videodermoscopy (VDS), in determining margins during MS for the treatment of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the head and neck...

BACKGROUND: Effective treatment by Mohs micrographic surgery requires preparation of high-quality slides. OBJECTIVE: To examine a novel tissue alignment device designed to address variability in tissue processing because of excessive sample trimming. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A device was designed to account for angular errors and unparalleled tissue embedding. A retrospective chart review was performed both with and without the use of the device over the course of a 4-year period (2012-2015)...

BACKGROUND: The pathology observed on initial biopsy specimens for nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC), specifically the tumor subtype, weighs heavily into the selection of the treatment modality. Recognizing aggressive features on intraoperative Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) frozen sections that were not indicated on initial biopsy reports is not uncommon. To date, there is limited data describing this discrepancy. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the frequency and nature of incongruity between the pathology seen in initial biopsies and intraoperative Mohs sections, providing information that will potentially impact skin cancer treatment and biopsy recommendations...

BACKGROUND: Aggressive digital papillary adenocarcinoma (ADPA) is a rare adenocarcinoma of the sweat glands. AIMS: We wish to report the treatment of two cases of ADPA with Mohs micrographic surgery and review the presentation, management, and prognosis of this rare malignancy. MATERIALS & METHODS: Cases of ADPA were identified from recent surgery logs. Demographic, tumor, and treatment characteristics were extracted. A PubMed database search for English language full-text articles of aggressive digital papillary adenocarcinoma was performed, and relevant articles were summarized...

Porocarcinoma is a rare malignant neoplasm of the acrosyringium with metastatic potential that most commonly presents on the acral skin in older adults (mean age = 72 years). We present the case of a 43-year-old woman who developed a rapidly growing de novo porocarcinoma on the scalp with an unusual oncocytic appearance. The tumor consisted of benign eccrine poroma that arose from the epidermis and broad pushing borders with minimal cytological atypia but ample eosinophilic cytoplasm with numerous mitotic figures...

REVIEW
Margit Marisa Polcz, Deshan Frank Sebaratnam, Pablo Fernández-Peñas
Atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX) is a rare spindle cell neoplasm predominantly found on the head and neck of elderly individuals with sun-damaged skin, with no evidence-based guidelines for their management. A systematic retrospective review of the literature focusing on treatment modality found a recurrence and metastasis rate of 8.0% (5.6% when adjusted for incomplete excisions) and 0.5% for local excision and 4.6% and 3.2% for Mohs micrographic surgery, respectively. Our results suggest that with clear surgical margins, AFX is unlikely to recur and metastases are rare, with significantly higher rates in the immunosuppressed population...

INTRODUCTION: The Spanish Mohs Surgery Registry is used to collect data on the use and outcomes of Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) in Spain. The aim of this study was to describe perioperative and intraoperative data recorded for MMS procedures performed between July 2013 (when the registry started) and January 2016. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Prospective cohort study of data from 18 hospitals. The data collected included type of anesthesia, surgical technique, hospital admission, number of Mohs stages, management of preoperative risk factors, additional treatments, previous treatments, type of tumor, operating time, and complications...

REVIEW
Alvaro E Acosta, Catalina Santa Vélez
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a slow growing tumor with a very low metastatic potential but with significant subclinical extension and great capacity for local destruction. Thus, the first surgeon approached with such challenging tumor must attempt to cure the patient with a method that spares healthy tissue and ensures an optimal oncological, functional, and esthetic result. The treatment of DFSP often requires a multidisciplinary approach. Depending on location, dermatologic surgeons, surgical oncologists, head and neck surgeons, neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons, and occasionally medical oncologists may be involved with the management...

REVIEW
Teo Soleymani, S Tyler Hollmig
Atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX) and pleomorphic dermal sarcoma (PDS) tumors share many clinical, etiologic, and histologic features and likely represent components of a tumor spectrum. In dermatologic oncology, differentiating between AFX and PDS is pivotal as tumors with histological features consistent with PDS are more likely to behave in a clinically aggressive manner. Importantly, the term "pleomorphic dermal sarcoma" (PDS) is a more appropriate designation than "undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma" (UPS) for describing deeper, more aggressive, histologically high-grade cutaneous tumors that otherwise resemble AFX...
