In 72 basal-cell epitheliomas, the clinical extension and the actual extension of the defect measured by complete tumor removal by Mohs' chemosurgery were compared. Subclinical extension depends on the type of basal-cell epithelioma (primary, recurrent), on case history, location, clinical diameter, number of previous treatments and histological type. It is remarkably great in large (diameter more than 20 mm), in morphea-like basal-cell epitheliomas on the forehead, temple and scalp, especially… CONTINUE READING
