Management of Inadequately Excised Epidermoid Carcinoma

Management of Inadequately Excised Epidermoid Carcinoma Abstract Fifteen squamous cell carcinomas of the skin, termed inadequately excised by the pathologist, were aggravated by lack of patient cooperation or availability. If there was no prophylactic treatment, a recurrence rate of about 50% and an ultimate patient mortality of about 25% from uncontrolled cancer was observed. Prophylactic retreatment with reexcision or radiotherapy before the appearance of clinical recurrence in 24 patients significantly reduced these failures. References 1.

Abstract

Abstract Fifteen squamous cell carcinomas of the skin, termed inadequately excised by the pathologist, were aggravated by lack of patient cooperation or availability. If there was no prophylactic treatment, a recurrence rate of about 50% and an ultimate patient mortality of about 25% from uncontrolled cancer was observed. Prophylactic retreatment with reexcision or radiotherapy before the appearance of clinical recurrence in 24 patients significantly reduced these failures. References 1.
