  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Factors affecting the recurrence rate of basal cell carcinoma.
  • The aim of this retrospective survey was to determine recurrence rates after treatment of basal cell carcinomas in a single academic dermatology department.
  • A total of 1016 patients with 1593 histologically verified basal cell carcinomas (n=1212 primary and n=381 relapsing) were included.
  • The relapse rate for primary basal cell carcinomas on the scalp was highest (odds ratio (OR)=2.8, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.5-5.3).
  • T2 and T3 tumours showed a 2- and 3-fold increased relapse rate, respectively, compared with T1 basal cell carcinomas.
  • Patients with chronic skin diseases had a 50% lower risk of relapse than healthy patients (OR=0.5, CI=0.3-0.8).
  • Recurrent basal cell carcinomas had a higher relapse rate than primary lesions (OR=1.8, CI=1.4-2.2).
  • Patients treated in a specialized skin cancer unit had a 6.4-fold (CI=2.4-17.4) higher cure rate compared with those treated by less experienced physicians.
  • Treatment in the setting of a specialized skin cancer unit yields a much lower relapse rate.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Basal cell carcinoma of scalp in patients with history of childhood therapeutic radiation: a retrospective study and comparison to nonirradiated patients.
  • BACKGROUND: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common human malignant neoplasm.
  • Some patients with scalp BCC have had a history of childhood scalp radiation for the treatment of tinea capitis.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: From 1995 to 2005, a total of 74 patients were diagnosed with scalp BCC.
  • Thirty-eight patients (group A) had a history of childhood radiation to the scalp for the treatment of tinea capitis, and the other 36 (group B) did not.
  • Patients in group A had a longer history of scalp lesions (P = 0.001).
  • CONCLUSION: BCC in irradiated scalp has a more aggressive behavior and may need a more aggressive surgical resection.
  • Also, these patients should be under close observation because there is a higher chance for tumor recurrence and also new lesions occurring elsewhere in the scalp.

8. Scheinfeld N: Review of scalp alopecia due to a clinically unapparent or minimally apparent neoplasm (SACUMAN). Acta Derm Venereol; 2006;86(5):387-92
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] Review of scalp alopecia due to a clinically unapparent or minimally apparent neoplasm (SACUMAN).
  • Neoplastic cells, both malignant and benign, local occurring and metastatic, can cause alopecia of the scalp.
  • However, the infiltration of neoplastic cells is sometimes not florid; a condition known as "scalp alopecia due to a clinically unapparent or minimally apparent neoplasm" (SACUMAN).
  • The most common neoplasm in which an uncomplicated, minimally or unapparent scalp alopecia occurs and no infiltrate of cancer is suspected is metastatic breast carcinoma.
  • Other causes include squamous and basal cell carcinomas, angiosarcoma, gastric carcinoma, placental site tromphoblastic tumor, and mycosis fungoides.
  • In conclusion, neoplasms causing cicatricial alopecia of the scalp are very rare, so generalizations from the limited number of case reports are of uncertain importance.
  • Moreover, it is likely that many cases of neoplasms causing cicatricial alopecia of the scalp are diagnosed as inflammatory alopecia and not neoplasms, thus depriving us of a full accounting and understanding of this entity.
  • Dermatologists must be aware that in rare cases a bland scalp alopecia can represent a new or recurring, local or metastatic neoplasm.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intracranial invasion of a basal cell carcinoma of the scalp.
  • OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Basal cell carcinomas are common lesions that can have a locally invasive behavior.
  • The authors present a case of a scalp lesion with skull and dura-mater invasion that was unrecognized prior to surgical undertaking.
  • CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 66-year-old female presented with an extensive ulcerating lesion on the frontal scalp, deemed to be a basal cell carcinoma.
  • INTERVENTION: Resection of the invaded frontal scalp, bone, dura-mater and proximal part of the superior sagittal sinus was performed.
  • This was followed by a reconstructive procedure consisting of a duraplasty, a cranioplasty, and a skin rotation flap and partial-thickness skin grafting.
  • CONCLUSION: Radiological evaluation of scalp basal cell carcinomas should be done prior to surgery to rule out any bony or intracranial invasion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Coverage of the cranium with latissimus dorsi in the recurrent basal cell carcinoma of Gorlin syndrome: for protection against clinical invasion.
  • Gorlin's syndrome is a genetic disorder of autosomal dominant inheritance with characterized primarily by five major findings: multiple basal cell carsinoma (BCC), jaw cysts, pits on the palms and soles, ectopic calcification of the falx cerebri and skeletal anomalies.
  • The authors present a 25-year-old man affected by recurrent basal cell carcinoma on the scalp.
  • The fascial component of the scalp forms an additional layer between the skin and the cranium.
  • This structure creates an extra distance before the invasion into the cranium which needs to be penetrated by the skin tumor.
  • Muscle tissue transformed in scalp reconstruction imitates the fascia layer in forming an additional layer against the invasion of skin tumors such as recurrent BCC into the cranium.
  • Free flap reconstruction for recurrent scalp BCC can be best therapy model at Gorlin's syndrome.

  • SUBJECT: The advanced tumors of the scalp can involve the calvarium, the dura and the cerebral tissue.
  • The medium sized full thickness scalp defects secondary to the excision of such cutaneous malignancy can be successfully treated with local flaps coming from the remaining scalp if these flaps are large and including at least one major pedicle of the scalp.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: From May 2001 to July 2006, 21 patients aged between 52 and 78 years old, suffering from advanced basal and squamous cell carcinomas with invasion of the calvarium in all cases, the dura in 1 case and the cerebral tissue in 2 cases have benefited from an excision of the scalp and calvarium with a margin between 1 and 3 cm.
  • The secondary defects measured between 9 and 15 cm for the scalp and between 6 and 9 cm for the calvarium.
  • RESULTS: There were no vascular problems in all these flaps--3 cases of infection in the simultaneous reconstruction of the scalp and calvarium are reported.
  • CONCLUSION: Such complex defects of the tumoral scalp can be reconstructed with large and axial local flaps of the remaining scalp with safety.

  • [Title] The incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer after a single field treatment with aminolevulinic acid and blue light photodynamic therapy.
  • : e14646 Background: Non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is the most common form of human cancer.
  • Study pts received a single application of 20 % ALA to the face or scalp following by exposure to blue light at 10 J/cm2.
  • RESULTS: 43 Caucasian males (range 59- 87 yrs), 37 (87%) had history of NMSC on the face or scalp, 32 (78%) had basal cell carcinoma (BCC), 11 (22%) squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), 100% of patients had multiple (>4) AKs prior to treatment and 23 (75% ) had moderate to severe DH determined by Griffiths scale.
  • No such differences were observed between the frequency of SCC before and after ALA-PDT (P=0.6230) Conclusions: A single ALA-PDT treatment to the face or scalp in high risk patients significantly reduces the incidence of BCC, the incidence of SCC was not reduced.

  • [Title] Reconstruction of cheek skin defects by the 'Yin-Yang' rotation of the Mustardé flap and the temporoparietal scalp.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSES: When the skin's laxity is limited, the preauricular cutaneous defect resulting from the Mustardé cheek rotation flap for the coverage of suborbital skin defects is very difficult to close even with a large undermining of the cervicofacial skin.
  • The rotation of the temporoparietal scalp in an opposite direction compared to the Mustardé flap or the 'Yin-Yang' rotation of these flaps is interesting for two reasons: it allows an easy closure of this preauricular defect with a limited facial undermining and it suspends with efficiency the Mustardé flap at the temporal area avoiding the lower lid's ectropion.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: From September 2001 to April 2005, nine patients aged between 35 and 78 years old, with no facial skin laxity, have benefited from this technique to cover suborbital defects secondary to excision of basal cell carcinomas with a mean diameter of 6 cm.
  • The design of the Mustardé flap was classical but the skin undermining stopped at the mandible's lower border.
  • CONCLUSION: This is a good technique for the simple coverage of medium-sized suborbital skin defects.

  • BACKGROUND: Cryosurgery (CS) in the treatment of nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSCs), especially in the face and on the scalp, has several advantages vs. other methods.
  • OBJECTIVES: To establish long-term results after curettage and CS (CCS) of NMSCs in the face and on the scalp considering complication rate, patient tolerance, cosmetic outcome and rate of recurrence.
  • METHODS: Seven hundred and twenty-six patients with 962 face and scalp NMSCs were prospectively followed after CCS (1 week, 3 months, and then annually) during the time period December 1994-September 2008.
  • CCS is thus a highly viable alternative in the treatment of NMSCs in the face and on the scalp.

  • [Title] Basal cell (trichoblastic) carcinoma common expression pattern for epithelial cell adhesion molecule links basal cell carcinoma to early follicular embryogenesis, secondary hair germ, and outer root sheath of the vellus hair follicle: A clue to the adnexal nature of basal cell carcinoma?
  • BACKGROUND: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is still viewed by many dermatologists as a tumor of the interfollicular epidermis, although references were made early in the dermatopathologic literature to the resemblance of BCC to the hair follicle.
  • OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to characterize the common expression pattern for the epithelial cell adhesion molecule (Ep-CAM) in BCCs, various stages of follicular embryogenesis, and adult hair follicles and, thereby, in analogy point to the similarity between BCC and the hair follicle.
  • In addition, we examined terminal scalp and vellus hair follicles.
  • CONCLUSION: BCC expresses the cell-cell adhesion molecule Ep-CAM similar to the embryonic hair germ, the secondary hair germ of the terminal hair follicle, and the outer root sheath of the vellus hair follicle.

  • On low power, the tumor had the overall histological silhouette of a nodular basal cell carcinoma.
  • However, because of the lack of an epithelial connection and the cell's cytomorphological features, a MCC was considered and was subsequently confirmed using immunohistochemical stains.

  • BACKGROUND: Basal cell carcinoma with mixed histology (BCC-MH) demonstrates more than one pathologic pattern of tumor.
  • Appropriate therapy for the nonaggressive tumor subtype diagnosed from a superficial biopsy may not be adequate to treat the unsuspected aggressive tumor subtype, resulting in recurrent skin cancer.
  • CONCLUSION: More than 40% of basal cell carcinomas referred for removal of the residual tumor were BCC-MH.
  • Subsequently, the cancer may recur if the initial treatment for the diagnosed nonaggressive tumor subtype is inadequate for the undiscovered aggressive carcinoma.

  • BACKGROUND: There has been no previously published study on skin cancers on the scalp of women.
  • OBJECTIVES: To better elucidate the characteristics of skin cancers that develop on the female scalp.
  • METHODS: A retrospective review of 13,885 biopsy-proven skin cancers treated by Mohs micrographic surgery was performed.
  • We identified 197 tumors on the scalp of women.
  • RESULTS: The average age of women with scalp tumors was 61.8 +/- 16.9, which was significantly lower than that of men with scalp tumors.
  • Overall, 77% of female scalp tumors were basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), 17% were squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs), and 6% were a variety of other tumors.
  • This contrasts with men in whom 53% of tumors were squamous cell carcinomas.
  • Basal cell carcinomas were significantly more common in women under age 50.
  • CONCLUSION: Skin cancers of the female scalp tend to be basal cell carcinomas, many of which occur at a relatively young age as compared to other skin cancers.

  • Patients who underwent this treatment are at high risk of developing scalp tumors or other cancers.
  • The aim of this study was to characterize scalp tumors occurring after X-ray therapy for ringworm.
  • METHODS: We included cases of postradiotherapy scalp tumors recorded at the Dermatology Department of the Charles Nicolle Hospital, Tunis between 1988 and 2001.
  • Tumors were basal cell carcinomas in 47 cases, trichoblastomas in 10 cases and trichoblastic carcinomas in 4 cases.
  • Mean delay of onset of tumors after radiotherapy was 39.4 years in basal cell carcinoma cases, 38.3 years in trichoblastoma cases and 35.6 years in trichoblastic carcinoma cases.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This series shows that although basal cell carcinoma is the most frequent tumor in this situation, trichoblastomas are common.

  • [Title] Scalp tumors treated with Mohs micrographic surgery: clinical features and surgical outcome.
  • BACKGROUND: There are only a small number of reports on the outcome of scalp tumors treated with Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS).
  • OBJECTIVE: The objective was to present a large series of patients with scalp tumors treated with MMS in Australia between 1993 and 2002.
  • METHODS: This prospective, multicenter study included all patients with scalp tumors who were monitored by the Skin and Cancer Foundation Australia.
  • The most common tumors were basal cell carcinoma (BCC), 57.9%; squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), 35.8%; Bowen's disease (BD), 4.1%; and atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX), 1.6%.
  • CONCLUSION: BCC was the most common scalp tumor managed by MMS.
  • The low 5-year recurrence rate emphasizes the importance of margin controlled excision of scalp tumors.

  • [Title] [Surgical treatment of scalp malignant tumor].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of different surgical methods in treating scalp malignant tumors.
  • METHODS: From January 1995 to September 2004, 70 patients with scalp malignant tumor were treated with different surgical methods.
  • There were 31 cases of basal cell carcinoma, 24 cases of squamous carcinoma, 8 cases of melanocarcinoma, 4 cases of fibrous sarcoma, 2 cases of liposarcoma, and 1 case of vasculosarcoma.
  • Scalp defect ranged from 3 cm x 3 cm to 12 cm x 11 cm after clearing up the tumors.
  • Defect was repaired withfree skin transplantation in 51 cases, scalp flap in 12 cases, cervico-shoulder flap in 2 cases, trapizius myocutaneous flap in 3 cases, and radial artery retro-island flap in 2 cases.
  • RESULTS: Of 70 cases, 67 skin flaps survived and incision healed by first intention; 2 flaps necrosed at distal part (< 1 cm) and healed by second intention after dressing change; 1 flap infected and was treated with symptomatic medication.
  • In patients receiving skin transplantation, 1 case of squamous carcinoma and 1 case of fibrous sarcoma relapsed after 1 year and 2.5 years respectively and were given radical resection and skin flap grafting; in patients receiving skin flap grafting, 1 case of vasculosarcoma and 1 case of squamous carcinoma relapsed after 6 months and 3 months respectively, and gave up treatment; 1 case of fibrous sarcoma relapsed after 2 years and was given radical resection and skin flap grafting.
  • CONCLUSION: Scalp malignant tumors should be diagnosised and treated as early as possible.

  • [Title] Basal cell carcinoma and pilomatrixoma mirror human follicular embryogenesis as reflected by their differential expression patterns of SOX9 and β-catenin.
  • BACKGROUND: The current classification schemes of adnexal tumours are predominantly based on morphological and immunophenotypical similarities to adult skin structures, whereas a link between the embryology of the skin and the histogenesis of adnexal tumours has been largely neglected.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe the expression patterns of two proteins with proven relevance for hair follicle homeostasis (SOX9 and β-catenin) during human cutaneous embryogenesis and to compare the findings with their expression in basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and pilomatrixoma.
  • METHODS: Immunohistochemical evaluation with monoclonal antibodies against SOX9 and β-catenin was carried out in embryonic and adult human scalp skin, and BCC and pilomatrixoma samples.

  • [Title] Metatypical basal cell carcinoma: a clinical review.
  • BACKGROUND: Metatypical cell carcinoma can be considered as a new entity of skin cancer, being an intermediate typology between basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas.
  • The behaviour of the metatypical cell carcinoma lies between these two varieties of skin cancer.
  • It is difficult to perform a differential diagnosis based on morphological and clinical features - therefore it is only possible by accurate histology.
  • METHODS: The authors have retrospectively analysed clinical records of 240 patients who were affected by metatypical skin cancer and who were treated by surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
  • The most affected site was the cervicofacial area, 71.7%; then the trunk, 10%; the limbs, 9.6%; the scalp 3.7%; and other regions 5%.
  • CONCLUSION: In this manuscript, the authors have emphasised the importance of conducting a differential diagnosis, and the importance of the specific treatment for metatypical skin cancer, even though more clinical studies and long-term follow-ups are required before establishing specific guidelines.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Basal cell carcinoma histological clearance margins: an analysis of 1539 conventionally excised tumours. Wider still and deeper?
  • An analysis of peripheral and deep margins of histological clearance around 1539 consecutive basal cell carcinomas excised by conventional surgery showed that 81 lesions (5.3%) were incompletely excised peripherally; 36 lesions (2.3%) were incompletely excised deeply; 13 lesions (0.8%) were incompletely excised peripherally and deeply.
  • Peripheral histological clearance was <5mm (0.1-4.9mm) for 55% of temple lesions, 50% of scalp lesions and 43% for limb lesions.
  • This study of conventional surgical excision of basal cell carcinomas with an incomplete excision rate of 8% has shown that 65% of lesions were excised with <5mm histological clearance peripherally and 85% with <5mm deep clearance.
  • However, peripheral margins did exceed 5mm in more than 30% of lesions of scalp, temple and forehead, and for these sites where even with loupe magnification the tumour edge could be difficult to define, either frozen section control or Mohs' technique, might with benefit be more often used in order to minimise normal tissue sacrifice.

  • Numerous benign skin conditions including eczema and psoriasis have historically been treated with X-rays.
  • During the 1930s and 1940s radiotherapy was introduced as an effective treatment for scalp ringworm (tinea capitis).
  • Over the past few years radio-induced malignancies have been reported, with basal cell carcinoma predominating.
  • With the increasing age of this irradiated population we may continue to see further evidence of the link between melanoma and skin irradiation.

  • BACKGROUND: The scalp is a unique anatomic region, in which pilosebaceous follicles are concentrated.
  • OBJECTIVE: We sought to investigate demographic characteristics and histologic distributions of malignant scalp tumors.
  • METHODS: Primary and metastatic scalp malignancies diagnosed histopathologically between 1983 and 2003 were reviewed.
  • Age at diagnosis, sex, and histologic types were analyzed.
  • Age at diagnosis ranged from 3 to 103 years.
  • Most malignant scalp tumors (69.8%) occurred in those 50 years or older.
  • Basal (41.2%) and squamous (16.6%) cell carcinomas were the most common histologic types.
  • LIMITATIONS: In our series, the case number of metastatic scalp malignancies was underestimated because not all patients with metastatic scalp tumors received a scalp skin biopsy.
  • CONCLUSION: Because a wide spectrum of primary and metastatic malignancies can occur on the scalp, scalp inspection should be included in general screening for either skin or internal cancers.

  • Basosquamous carcinoma (BSC) is defined as a tumor containing the areas of both basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with a transition zone linking the two.
  • Spindle cell squamous carcinoma (SCSC) may have a variable component of conventional SCC and spindle cells.
  • We present a case of an 89-year-old woman with an eruption on the scalp for several decades.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells in the SCSC (both conventional and spindle cell) area co-expressed CAM5.2, and vimentin.
  • To our knowledge, this is the first case report of SCC of the skin that has dual differentiations to BSC and SCSC.

  • [Title] Skin cancer: preventive photodynamic therapy in patients with face and scalp cancerization. A randomized placebo-controlled study.
  • Background Patients with a previous medical history of nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSCs) often develop multiple or recurrent malignant lesions around the site of the primary tumour.
  • This finding led to the field cancerization theory, which suggests that the entire epithelial surface of the regional skin has an increased risk for the development of malignant lesions.
  • Objectives We sought to investigate whether field-photodynamic therapy (PDT) of extreme photodamaged skin would prevent new NMSCs, in comparison with a control area receiving placebo-PDT, in patients with clinical and histological signs of field cancerization.
  • Methods Forty-five patients, previously diagnosed as having NMSCs of the face or scalp, with actinic keratoses symmetrically distributed over the same regions, were randomized for field treatment with 20% aminolaevulinic acid (ALA)-PDT on one side and placebo-PDT on the other.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Diffuse epidermal and periadnexal squamous cell carcinoma in situ: a report of 13 patients.
  • BACKGROUND: Diffuse epidermal and periadnexal squamous cell carcinoma in situ (DEPS) is a condition in which large areas of skin are affected by atypical keratinocytes that grow beneath the epidermis and encase adnexal epithelia.
  • The lesions were present on the scalp, face, and neck.
  • In the 52 cumulative patient-years of follow-up, we treated 80 invasive squamous cell and 48 basal cell carcinomas in these patients.
  • CONCLUSION: DEPS is characterized by diffuse involvement of chronically sun-exposed skin with atypical keratinocytes that grow along the inferior portion of the basal layer of the epidermis and around adnexal structures.
  • DEPS is also associated with the development of invasive squamous cell and basal cell carcinomas.

  • AKs are believed to progress to in situ squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and potentially, to invasive SCC.
  • (iii) to characterize the histopathology of untreated clinically diagnosed AK lesions in the study population at baseline; and (iv) to evaluate ALA-PDT in darker skin types than previously studied.
  • METHODS: Patients enrolled in this study had six to 12 discrete AK lesions, either on the face or the scalp.
  • With respect to the lesions biopsied, 91% (127/139) were diagnosed histopathologically as AK, with the balance of lesions being SCC (nine of 139: 7%), basal cell carcinoma (one of 139: 0.7%) and other non-AK diagnoses (two of 139: 1%).
  • The clinical diagnosis of AK by investigators appeared to be accurate, with 91% (200/220) of the untreated clinically diagnosed AK lesions being histopathologically confirmed to be AK (AK, 142/220: 65%; advanced AK, 29/220: 13%; macular AK, 29/220: 13%).
  • Despite concentrated efforts to recruit patients with Fitzpatrick skin types IV-VI, the distribution was as follows: I, 11%; II, 36%; III, 41%; IV, 11%; V, 2%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: ALA-PDT was shown to be an effective and safe therapy for the treatment of AKs of the face and scalp in skin types I-V, with an acceptable rate of recurrence over 12 months of histologically confirmed AKs of 19%.
  • Phototoxicity reactions were all expected, nonserious and had essentially resolved after 1 month post-treatment independent of skin type.

  • [Title] Facial resurfacing for nonmelanoma skin cancer prophylaxis.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of facial skin resurfacing for treatment of actinic keratoses (AKs) and prophylaxis against new primary basal and squamous cell carcinomas in individuals with previous nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) or severe photodamage.
  • PATIENTS: Thirty-four patients with a history of facial or scalp AKs or basal or squamous cell carcinoma were enrolled.
  • Times from baseline to diagnosis of first skin cancer were compared between the treatment and control groups.
  • RESULTS: Treatment with fluorouracil, trichloroacetic acid, or carbon dioxide laser resulted in an 83% to 92% reduction in AKs (P< or =.03), a lower incidence of NMSC compared with the control group (P<.001), and a trend toward longer time to development of new skin cancer compared with the control group (P=.07).
  • CONCLUSION: All 3 modalities demonstrated benefit for AK reduction and skin cancer prophylaxis compared with controls and warrant further study in a larger trial.

  • OBJECTIVE: To describe the demographics of patients presenting with skin cancer to general practitioners in rural North Queensland, the sites from which skin cancers are removed, and their histology.
  • METHODS: Data was recorded from 1247 consecutive patients who attended for minor skin lesion excisions.
  • RESULTS: Close to half (46.7%) of lesions excised were skin cancers.
  • We excised more squamous cell carcinomas than basal cell carcinomas (0.74:1).
  • Mean age for excision of melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma was 55, 60.9 and 63.8 years respectively.
  • Relative tumour density was greatest in the face, scalp and neck region for all skin cancers.
  • DISCUSSION: In this sample of Mackay GPs, there was a very high yield of skin cancers from all excisions.

  • [Title] Spatiotemporal expression pattern of neuroepithelial stem cell marker nestin suggests a role in dermal homeostasis, neovasculogenesis, and tumor stroma development: a study on embryonic and adult human skin.
  • OBJECTIVE: Because the neuroepithelial stem cell marker nestin represents a marker for mesenchymal stem cells in various tissues, our aim was to characterize its spatiotemporal expression pattern in the skin with special reference to the follicular mesenchyme.
  • METHODS: We studied immunohistochemically nestin expression over the course of human cutaneous embryogenesis, in postnatal skin, in scalp wounds, and in the peritumoral stroma of basal cell carcinomas and compared its expression with that of other known mesenchymal markers.
  • Its expression is up-regulated in scalp wounds and the nestin-positive cells seem to originate from the follicular mesenchyme.
  • Nestin is also expressed in a thin layer of fibroblasts in the immediate vicinity of basal cell carcinomas.
  • LIMITATIONS: The examination for nestin expression of scalp wounds is considered preliminary, because we examined scalp wounds representing re-excisions of previously diagnosed neoplasms from which we had no exact time table available as to when the original excision took place.
  • CONCLUSION: We propose that nestin functions as a stem cell marker of the follicular mesenchyme and has a major regulatory role in dermal homeostasis, cutaneous neovasculogenesis, and tumor stroma development.

  • [Title] Surgery for head and neck skin tumors in the elderly.
  • BACKGROUND: Our aim was to determine the surgical characteristics of an elderly cohort of patients undergoing resection of head and neck skin neoplasms.
  • METHODS.: All cases of patients with head and neck skin neoplasms (excluding malignant melanoma) who underwent surgical resection in a regional referral center over a 10-year period were retrospectively reviewed.
  • They also had a higher incidence of scalp involvement and lower incidence of nasal involvement (both p < .05).
  • Elderly patients had a larger lesion size at presentation and required sacrifice of a greater area of skin (both p < .05).
  • However, they also underwent more local anesthetic procedures, although the need for local flap or skin graft repair was not increased.
  • CONCLUSION: With careful attention to comorbid illness and perioperative monitoring, surgical resection of head and neck skin neoplasms is safe in the elderly.
  • Lesions are more advanced at presentation and hence require sacrifice of a larger area of skin to obtain macroscopic clearance.
  • Yet for the majority of lesions, local anesthesia is adequate and surgical resection and simple skin closure can be accomplished without the need for complex flap or skin graft reconstructions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A population-based study of skin cancer incidence and prevalence in renal transplant recipients.
  • OBJECTIVES: To determine the incidence of all cancers following renal transplantation and to make a detailed examination of trends and patterns associated with postrenal transplant skin cancers.
  • METHODS: Integration of data from the national renal transplant database and the national cancer registry in Ireland enabled accurate determination of the number of renal transplant recipients (RTRs) with skin cancers and other malignancies in the time period 1 January 1994 to 31 December 2001.
  • RESULTS: We demonstrated a biphasic increase in skin cancer incidence following renal transplantation, determined by the age at transplantation.
  • The number of nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSCs) registered in RTRs accounted for 1% of all NMSCs registered nationally over the study period.
  • The standardized incidence rates for invasive NMSC (33-fold increase) and in situ carcinoma of the skin (65-fold increase) were significantly increased (P < 0.05).
  • The risk for invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) was increased 82-fold compared with the nontransplanted population.
  • Male RTRs were at particular risk of invasive SCC at sun-exposed sites such as the scalp and the external ear.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This comprehensive national study illustrates how rates of skin cancer in Irish RTRs have influenced the national incidence of skin cancer.
  • The high incidence of SCC, basal cell carcinoma and Bowen's disease in the early post-transplant period for older patients and the cumulative risk in younger patients with increased duration of transplantation highlight the importance of implementing early and continued cancer surveillance regimens post-transplant.

  • [Title] Clear cell trichoblastoma: a clinicopathological and ultrastructural study of two cases.
  • Clear cell change in basal cell carcinomas is a well-recognized phenomenon, but is obviously rare in trichoblastomas.
  • We present two cases of clear cell trichoblastoma in which clear cell change was very much prominent, and the results of an ultrastructural study intended to explore the basis of that feature.
  • Both our patients were women, aged 56 and 77 years, who presented with solitary, slowly growing nodules that measured 3 to 5 cm in largest dimension and were located on the scalp and the flexor aspect of the lower arm.
  • Common to both tumors was clear cell cytoplasm evident in the majority of the epithelial cells in one case and almost in the entire epithelial cell population in the other.
  • In most epithelial aggregations the epithelial cells with clear cytoplasm often appeared columnar and were arranged in a palisade along a recognizable basal membrane, thus indicative of outer sheath differentiation at the bulb.
  • In addition to the usual organelles, the cytoplasm contained fairly conspicuous tonofilaments and variably sized vacuoles devoid of a limiting membrane, located between the palisaded nuclei and the outer cell membrane.

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.
  • Constraints include tissue match, hair-bearing scalp, proximity of eyelids and eyebrows, and a cosmetically prominent location.
  • This article describes a local flap for reconstructing central forehead skin defects that achieves tissue coverage with a cosmetically appealing result.
  • The defects were closed using bilateral periglabellar local advancement flaps with Burow's triangles, with scars in the natural skin creases of the aging forehead.
  • The inferior triangles were oriented obliquely within skin creases of the corrugator muscles.
  • RESULTS: Five patients with central forehead melanomas and one patient with Mohs' defects after excision of basal cell carcinoma were referred by their dermatologists (age range, 60 to 83 years; mean, 72 years).
  • CONCLUSION: For central forehead skin defects up to 5 cm in diameter, the periglabellar flap offers a reconstructive option that uses local tissue and hides scars within natural forehead wrinkles, providing an aesthetically pleasing result.

  • The nevus sebaceus of Jadassohn (SNJ) is a hamartomatous disorder of the skin and its adnexa pertaining to the group of "organoid nevi,'' most frequently involving the face and scalp.
  • It has been largely demonstrated in literature that most of the lesions that have been interpreted as basal cell carcinoma (BCC) are actually examples of primitive follicular induction or trichoblastomas, not authentic BCCs.
  • In one case, the lesion was treated by intraoperative expander-assisted reduction and scalp graft (Case 1); in the other one, a primary closure with adjacent tissue was performed (Case 2).
  • For treatment of the biggest lesions, when preoperative tissue expansion cannot be performed, intraoperative one, transfer of a scalp graft has been shown to be a good reconstructive method.

  • In the past, she had been treated for basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the face; the referring physician was concerned that the new lesions might also be BCC.
  • In addition to BCC, she had been treated for breast cancer, colon cancer, and cervical cancer prior to emigrating to the USA.
  • Further details of her medical history and cancer staging were not available.
  • Her family history was significant for a sister with colon cancer and transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder.
  • In addition, she had a great aunt with oral cancer and a great uncle with lung cancer.
  • On physical examination, in addition to scars from a radical mastectomy and midline abdominal laparotomy, four skin lesions were noted: two on the scalp, one on the tragus, and one on the mid-back.
  • The first lesion on the vertex of the scalp was a yellow-brown waxy papule measuring 0.6 x 0.5 cm.
  • The second lesion on the frontal scalp measured 0.8 x 0.6 cm and was red-brown with a pearly appearance and some central hyperkeratosis.
  • The tragus lesion was similar in appearance to that on the frontal scalp.
  • The lesions on the scalp and mid-back revealed lobules of sebaceous cells in the dermis with a minority of surrounding basaloid cells, consistent with a diagnosis of sebaceous adenoma (Fig. 1).
  • Although the lesion on the frontal scalp also showed sebaceous differentiation, there were a greater number of basaloid cells, some with hyperchromatic nuclei and mitotic figures; this was consistent with a diagnosis of sebaceous epithelioma (Fig. 2).

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In this article a modified bilobed flap from mastoid and lateral neck skin for reconstruction of complex defects of the posteromedial surface of the auricle and mastoid skin, with the preservation of the retroauricular sulcus, is described.
  • It is in fact a shaded area with little aesthetic relevance and direct closure, skin grafting and even secondary healing are used for skin cancer defects repair.
  • Also mastoid skin defects can be repaired with simple techniques such as skin grafts or transposition flaps from the remaining mastoid skin or from the neck.
  • On the other hand, cancers involving the postero-medial auricular surface, the retroauricular sulcus and the mastoid skin require wide and deep resections that involve the posterior auricular muscles and reach the perichondral and periosteal surfaces.
  • Transposition flaps from the remaining mastoid skin, due to the lack of skin laxity, are not feasible because the donor site cannot be closed.
  • Two patients, both affected by basal cell carcinoma involving the posteromedial auricular surface and the mastoid skin have been treated with this flap.

  • [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.

  • Clinically, BD is frequently misdiagnosed as superficial basal cell carcinoma, patches of dermatitis, psoriasis, lichen planus, actinic keratosis, benign lichenoid keratosis, irritated seborrheic keratosis, viral warts, amelanotic melanoma or melanoma.
  • However, angiosarcoma has not usually been mentioned in the differential diagnosis of BD before.

  • A 54-year-old man presented with a recurrent swelling on the right occipital region of the scalp.
  • The specimen of the initial surgery consisted of skin-covered tissue with an exophytic firm growth measuring 6 x 5 x 4 cm.
  • The skin surface was rough with areas of ulceration.
  • One was a well-circumscribed tumor located in the superficial dermis with lobules of basaloid cell aggregates with peripheral palisading and with no epidermal connection.
  • Unlike basal cell carcinoma, however, no cleft between the cellular aggregates and stroma was noted.
  • Foci of pigmentation were seen within cellular lobules and these features were consistent with a diagnosis of tricho-blastoma.
  • The third lesion was a spindle cell sarcoma which formed the major part of the lesion, diffusely infiltrating the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, elevating and ulcerating the overlying skin.
  • The wide excision specimen of the recurrent swelling consisted of a skin-covered nodule with ulceration, measuring 3 x 4 x 3 cm, with a gray-white whorled cut surface.
  • Multiple sections showed only spindle cell sarcoma infiltrating the skin and subcutaneous tissue, morphologically similar to the earlier tumor, with ulceration of the overlying skin.
  • Immunohistochemical stains on the spindle cell sarcoma showed positive staining for smooth muscle actin (SMA) (Fig.
  • Correlating the histomorphology and immunohistochemical findings, a diagnosis of cutaneous leiomyosarcoma with tricho-blastoma and syringocystadenoma papilliferum arising on nevus sebaceus was made.
  • The patient received postoperative radiotherapy and is disease free 8 months after diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • It was also characterized as a general marker of basal cell carcinoma.
  • METHODS: We examined immunohistochemically samples from embryonic and fetal human skin for the expression of SOX9 using standard techniques.
  • For comparison reasons, we also included scalp skin from adults.
  • In plantar skin, SOX9 specifically labels the evolving eccrine glands but not the interfollicular keratinocytes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The distinctive expression pattern of SOX9 during human cutaneous embryogenesis indicates a key role in skin homeostasis that includes but goes beyond its role in outer root sheath differentiation.
  • Studying immunohistochemical markers in developing human skin has the potential to further our understanding of adult skin physiology and to deepen our concepts especially of the histogenesis of adnexal tumors (including those of the nail unit) and the relationship of the various adnexal structures to each other.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Malignant proliferating trichilemmal tumors (MPTT) are rare neoplasm arising from outer root sheath of hair follicle, the diagnosis of which is base essentially on histological features resulting in occasionally misdiagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma.
  • In difficult cases, however evaluation of additional parameters may be needed to differentiate benign proliferating trichilemmal tumor from MPTT or differentiate PTT and MPTT from squamous cell carcinoma.
  • For comparison, concurrent proliferating trichilemmal tumors (PTT) and trichilemmal cysts (TC) as well as well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) were studied.
  • The PTTs and TCs stained negative and few basal cells for p53 and Ki-67, respectively.
  • The contrast p53 and Ki-67 expression pattern in MPTT and PTT may be helpful in the diagnosis of MPTT.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The OCT4 transcription factor is a marker of pluripotency and is present in embryonic stem cells, primordial germ cells, and several neoplasms including seminoma, dysgerminoma, and embryonal carcinoma.
  • Recently, immunohistochemical expression of OCT4 protein has been described in the cells within the basal layer of normal human and canine epidermis.
  • We have examined a series of basal cell carcinomas and adnexal tumors of related histogenesis, in an effort to corroborate the above findings and to assess for expression of OCT4 protein in neoplasia of the infundibulo-apocrine-sebaceous unit.
  • We analyzed OCT4 expression in 115 cutaneous specimens including 26 basal cell carcinomas, 12 benign follicular tumors (10 trichoepitheliomas and 2 trichoblastomas), 10 benign apocrine tumors, 12 sebaceous hyperplasia lesions, 10 sebaceous adenomas, 4 sebaceous carcinomas, 13 nevi sebacei of Jadassohn, 8 squamous cell carcinomas (including one spindle-cell squamous cell carcinoma), 8 compound melanocytic nevi, 5 Merkel cell carcinomas, 3 pilar cysts, 1 scar, 2 nonspecific, mild superficial perivascular dermatitis specimens, and 1 non-scarring alopecia.
  • In contrast to previous studies, our data indicate that the OCT4 expression is not retained in cutaneous neoplasms derived from basal epidermis or related adnexal neoplasms, including lesions of the scalp.
