2. Rao K, Tillo O, Dalal M: Full thickness skin graft cover for lower limb defects following excision of cutaneous lesions. Dermatol Online J; 2008;14(2):4
MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Skin Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Full thickness skin graft cover for lower limb defects following excision of cutaneous lesions.
  • In comparison to split-skin grafts, full-thickness skin grafts achieve a better cosmetic outcome but take with more difficulty.
  • This study included 28 patients who underwent excision of a total of 30 lesions with full-thickness skin grafts.
  • The graft take was good (>80%) in 18 full-thickness skin grafts, while it was partial (50-75%) in 7 patients and was poor (25% or less) in 5 patients.
  • We conclude that, following excision of lower limb lesions, primary full-thickness skin grafting is an effective and safe method of resurfacing defects in the lower limbs with a very low incidence of donor site complications.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Infiltrative basal cell carcinoma presenting as chronic leg ulcer].
  • BACKGROUND: Basal cell carcinoma is the most common carcinoma of the skin and is usually found on the head and neck.
  • We report an unusual case of basal cell carcinoma presenting as a chronic leg ulcer, with underlying bone involvement.
  • CASE REPORT: A 70-year-old woman presented with a 15-year history of leg ulcer refractory to treatment.
  • Because of the exuberant granulation tissue on the base and the indurated edges of this circumferential leg ulcer, several biopsies were taken from the edge and the base of the ulcer.
  • Histological examination revealed infiltrative basal cell carcinoma.
  • Treatment consisted of surgical excision of 80% of the primary lesion and coverage with a split-thickness skin graft.
  • Examination of the surgical piece revealed invasion of bone by the carcinoma.
  • DISCUSSION: There is a need for awareness among all doctors of the clinical signs evocative of malignant transformation of a leg ulcer so that a skin biopsy may be performed for suspicious ulcers.
  • Our case is distinguished by the underlying invasion of bone by basal cell carcinoma, as attested by imaging and histology.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Basal cell naevus syndrome as the cause of a chronic foot ulcer].
  • He had previously been diagnosed with basal cell naevus syndrome but had withdrawn from follow-up.
  • There was a nodular skin defect over the first metatarsophalangeal joint, which was shown by histopathology to be a basal cell carcinoma, and the ulcer was bordered by a raised wall.
  • Further physical examination revealed more than 200 dermal lesions which were identified by the dermatologist who was called in for consultation as basal cell carcinomas; multiple depressions due to abnormal local keratinisation were also seen on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet.
  • These findings led to a diagnosis of 'basal cell naevus syndrome'.
  • The patient was treated by amputation of the lower leg followed by excision and curettage of the remaining basal cell carcinomas.
  • Basal cell naevus syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary disease.
  • Basal cell naevus syndrome is generally caused by a mutation in the 'patched homolog' (PTCH)-I gene, located on chromosome 9q22.3.
  • Although the syndrome affects multiple organ systems, the most characteristic of this disorder is the appearance of multiple basal cell carcinomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Malignant transformation of leg ulcers: a retrospective study of 85 cases.
  • BACKGROUND: Malignant transformation remains a rare, under-recognized and ominous, complication of leg ulcers, although its exact prevalence is unknown.
  • For squamous cell carcinomas (SCC), the duration of the ulcer had to be longer than 3 years.
  • For basal cell carcinomas (BCC), a negative previous biopsy of the ulcer was considered.
  • Leg amputation was performed in 29/51 (57%) of patients, irrespective of the degree of histological differentiation.
  • CONCLUSION: Malignant transformation of chronic leg ulcers of vascular origin is mainly encountered in elderly patients and manifests as an abnormally vegetating lesion, which may be occasionally bilateral.
  • The high death rate, especially in metastatic cases, is at least partly due to delay in diagnosis.
  • Leg amputation should be considered in the most extensive cases.

  • [Title] "On demand" posterior tibial artery perforator flaps: a versatile surgical procedure for reconstruction of soft tissue defects of the leg after tumor excision.
  • Relatively small soft-tissue defects of the lower leg following tumor excision are usually treated, especially in older patients, by split-thickness skin grafting.
  • On specific sites where periosteum or paratenon is exposed, as well as when a skin graft is best avoided for cosmetic reasons, an excellent alternative option is the use of posterior tibial artery perforator flaps.Such flaps are designed and elevated "on demand," ie, according to the defect location and on whichever perforator is best found suited to supply the flap and allow adequate transposition.However, operative time is longer, and the surgeon needs to be judicious in dissection, as well as versatile in choosing the best flap design after identifying a suitable perforator.Between 2003 and 2008, 24 patients underwent this procedure, with uniformly successful result except for 2 partial flap necrosis.The advantages of posterior tibial artery perforator flaps are a quick and usually safe procedure, which provides good contour with excellent color, texture, and thickness match, with long-term stability of the reconstruction at the expense of minimal donor-site morbidity.

  • METHODS: We retrospectively review 146 patients treated for skin tumors in our tertiary hospital from January 1979 to December 2002.
  • RESULTS: This study showed that Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) is the most common non melanomatous skin tumor in our environment.
  • The study revealed only 8 (5.5%) cases of basal cell carcinoma which is in contrast to what is obtained in the Europe and North America.
  • CONCLUSION: Unlike in the Caucasians, squamous cell carcinoma is the most common non-melanomatous skin tumor in our environment.
  • Most of our cases resulted from chronic leg ulcers secondary to poorly treated traumatic ulcers while others are due to chronic burn scar.

  • [Title] Expression of cathepsin L and its inhibitor hurpin in inflammatory and neoplastic skin diseases.
  • Whereas Cat L expression in normal skin was below detection limit, immunoreactivity was detected in chronic inflammatory dermatoses.
  • The highest expression of Cat L was found in psoriasis, atopic eczema and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) samples.
  • Samples of Lupus erythematosus, folliculitis, acne inversa, chronic leg ulcers and pyoderma gangrenosum demonstrated similar but lower expression for Cat L.
  • In malignant cells of SCC, basal cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma, characteristic staining patterns were observed for Cat L, with more abundant expression at the periphery of the tumor.
  • Expanding our previous work, we found that the expression of hurpin was confined mainly to the basal layer in normal skin samples, whereas hurpin was overexpressed and redistributed in diseased skin.
  • The localization of hurpin in dermatoses and neoplasias differed from that in normal skin in that the highest expression was found in the outermost layers of the granular and upper spinous layers.
  • The results presented here summarize for the first time the expression of the protease Cat L and its inhibitor hurpin in a broad spectrum of skin diseases.

  • METHODS: Between December of 2001 and April of 2003, the anterolateral thigh flap was used to reconstruct large facial skin defects after malignant tumor resection in 23 white patients.
  • The donor site was skin grafted in 18 patients.
  • A contour defect of the upper leg was encountered in five patients.
  • Sensory disturbances of the upper leg were observed in 12 patients.
  • Cold intolerance occurred three times after skin grafting.
  • No significant impairment was found in range of motion and muscle strength of the donor leg.
  • The versatility in design and composition of the anterolateral thigh flap and the low donor-site morbidity and satisfactory recipient-site outcome make it a valuable option in reconstruction of external skin defects in the head and neck region.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Skin Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Marjolin's ulcer is a malignant lesion observed in chronic wounds and in areas where the integrity of the skin is compromised because of any one of several reasons.
  • Primary lesions were at the leg, gluteal region, thigh, scalp, trunk, and hand in four (25%), three (18.7%), two (12.5%), two (12.5%), three (18.7%), and two (12.5%) cases, respectively.
  • Amputation was carried out to treat two cases, and repair of the defects with partial-thickness skin grafting was performed in 14 cases after tumor resection on the skin.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma was diagnosed in 14 cases (87.5%) and basal cell carcinoma in two cases (12.5%) postoperatively.
  • The authors conclude that diagnosis and surgical planning based on the recent literature must be carried out even more intensively to improve the prognosis of Marjolin's ulcer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Pilomatricoma is a rare skin neoplasm, most commonly seen in the head and neck region, and occurring in the first two decades of life.
  • Herein, we report a case of 35-year-old female, who had a 4-month history of a growing mass on her leg.
  • On physical examination, a 4-cm diameter, asymptomatic, erythematous, ulcerated mass was noted on the left anterio-lateral upper leg.
  • The first histopathological analysis of a punch biopsy from the lesion was reported as basal cell carcinoma.
  • Punch or excisional biopsies are preferred as a method of diagnosis for the majority of cutaneous neoplasms.
  • If total excision is not the method of choice, multiple punch biopsies should be made from different areas in large skin tumors for correct diagnosis.
