Letter: Skin cancer in albinos at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, Calabar, Nigeria.

Abstract

We evaluated all the albinos with a histologic diagnosis of skin cancer seen in the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, Calabar, Nigeria, during the 7-year period, (January 2001 to December 2007). The ages, sex, clinical presentation/site(s), number of lesions per patient, type of skin cancer, treatment, outcome and follow up were analyzed. This was compared with the total number of skin cancers. Of the skin cancers diagnosed, 11 percent were in patients with albinism.
