BACKGROUND An increased incidence of sporadic basal cell carcinoma (BCC) has been observed in young adults within the last years. It has been hypothesized that these BCC in younger subjects might be more aggressive compared to BCC in the elderly. OBJECTIVE To compare BCC recurrence rates between young and older patients. METHODS Retrospective study of(More)
Metastases to the skin from internal malignant neoplasms are uncommon and often preterminal event. Cutaneous metastases from an adrenal cortical carcinoma have rarely been reported even in the advanced stages of the disease. A patient was initially seen with a small cutaneous lesion on the cheek and was found to have a large adrenal cortical tumor.(More)
Late recurrence phenomenon in the course of melanoma (i.e. first recurrence after a 10 years or more disease free interval) is often ignored. Eleven cases and a literature review are presented. Main conclusions are: --lack of clinical or pathological criteria predicting the risk for a given patient, --possible underevaluation of the number of patients(More)
Sixteen patients with clinical stage II melanoma of unknown primary site (regional lymph node metastasis) were followed up between 1978 and 1988. The 5-year survival rate was 47%. These results seem to parallel those for stage II disease with known primary tumor sites, as has been observed in other data from the literature. The hypotheses put forward to(More)
