Although wide local excision has been the standard treatment of DFSP, recurrence rates range from 11% to 53%. Because Mohs micrographic surgery allows the extent of excision to be tailored to the microscopic extent of tumor, we evaluated this technique for the treatment of primary and recurrent… CONTINUE READING
