BACKGROUND squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) consists of altered keratinocytes, presents variable differentiation, inexorably progresses, and on occasion metastasizes. OBJECTIVE to investigate the biological activity of epidermal cells in SCCs by estimating the expression of PGP 9.5 and cyclin D1 using immunohistochemistry. METHODS the sample included 13 well-differentiated cases of cutaneous SCC (grade I), 12 moderately differentiated tumors (grade II), and 7 poorly differentiated lesions… CONTINUE READING
