BACKGROUND Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) represents a promising option for treatment of melanoma in situ (MIS). However, interpretation of melanocytic lesions by fresh frozen sections may be difficult. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine if margins called clear by MMS were clear by subsequent paraffin-embedded sections and to compare cure rate with available data for MMS and standard excision. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 167 patients with MIS, including 116 patients… Expand
