Multiple logistic analysis relating prognostic factors to risk of recurrence was performed for 1,417 basal cell carcinomas treated from 1955 to 1969 at New York University. The overall five-year recurrence rates by therapy were as follows: curettage-electrodesiccation, 26.0% (197/758); x-ray therapy, 9.7% (40/412); and surgical excision, 9.3% (23/247). Results for each treatment subgroup indicated that increasing lesion diameter and location of the lesion on various sites of the head… CONTINUE READING
