Abstract

OBJECTIVE

Evaluation of Mohs' micrographic surgery as treatment for recurrent basal cell carcinoma of the skin.

DESIGN

Retrospective.

SETTING

University Hospital Maastricht, the Netherlands.

METHOD

In the period April 1992 to December 1995, 91 recurrent basal cell carcinomas (88 patients) were treated by Mohs' micrographic surgery. Medical records were analysed retrospectively with respect to different aspects.

RESULTS

The mean age of the patients was 69 years. The recurrent basal cell carcinomas, with an mean diameter of 19.7 mm, were mainly localized on the nose and forehead. There were equal numbers of solid and morphea-like types of basal cell carcinomas. Most of these tumours had been treated by means of surgical excision in the past. The last treatment had taken place 3 years previously on average. Reconstruction was performed by means of primary closure, a graft or a flap. The mean follow-up period after Mohs' micrographic surgery was 12 months, in which one tumour recurred.

CONCLUSION

Mohs' micrographic surgery is a surgical technique which provides the best prospect of total tumour removal together with maximal functional and cosmetic preservation. Mohs' micrographic surgery is of particular value for the treatment of recurrent basal cell carcinomas.
