G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2018 Apr;153(2):278-282

Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Parma, Parma, Italy.

The skin cancers of the head and neck district are localized mostly on the nose, which, by being in the center of the mid-face, has an important aesthetic role. Therefore, many reconstructive techniques have been studied; among them regional skin flaps appeared the most suitable since they guaranteed the oncological radicality as well as a good aesthetic outcome. In this paper, we present our experience with the use of the Zitelli bilobed flap, which is defined as a double transposition flap for the reconstruction of the nose defects. Read More

Whole specimen intraoperative frozen section analysis. Experience with 1082 basal cell carcinomas.

Eur J Surg Oncol 2018 Jan 23;44(1):157-162. Epub 2017 Nov 23.

Department of Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery, Medical Centre Leeuwarden, Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. Electronic address:

Background: Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) excised leaving positive tumour margins, are at a higher risk of recurrence. Accordingly, complete tumour removal with preservation of healthy tissue, aiming for low recurrence rates, is the main goal in treating BCCs.

Objective: The present study aimed to identify the reliability of the Whole Specimen Intraoperative Frozen Section Analysis (WIFSA) technique by comparing intraoperative WIFSA and postoperative Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded section analysis (FFPE) results in 1082 basal cell carcinomas and by assessing the recurrence rates during a follow-up period up to 10 years.

FT-IR Spectroscopy Study in Early Diagnosis of Skin Cancer.

In Vivo 2017 Nov-Dec;31(6):1131-1137

Laboratory of Radiation Chemistry & Biospectroscopy, Chemical Engineering School, National Technical University of Athens, Athens, Greece

Background/aim: Mid-infrared spectroscopy (4000-500 cm) was used to analyze the spectral changes and differences of the characteristic absorption bands of the skin components due to cancer development for early clinical diagnosis.

Materials And Methods: Human biopsies from basal cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma, and nevus were used, while normal skin tissue served as a control.

Results: The high quality of Fourier-transform infrared (FT-IR) spectra showed that upon cancer development the intensity of the absorption band at approximately 3062 cm was increased, indicating that most of the proteins had the configuration of amide B and the β-sheet protein structure predominated.

Nonsyndromic Multiple Basal Cell Carcinomas.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2017 Sep 26;18(3):191-196. Epub 2017 Sep 26.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Bucheon St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Korea.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) comprising several lesions is not uncommon, but nonsyndromic multiple BCCs with parotid invasion are rare entities. We present two cases of multiple sporadic, nonsyndromic BCCs, and one of these cases is a unique case of parotid invasion associated purely with actinic keratosis. In Case 1, a 79-year-old female presented with multiple skin lesions on the face and left hand. Read More

Simultaneous Development of Three Different Neoplasms of Trichilemmoma, Desmoplastic Trichilemmoma and Basal Cell Carcinoma Arising from Nevus Sebaceus.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2017 Mar 25;18(1):46-49. Epub 2017 Mar 25.

Department of Pathology, Busan-Baik Hospital, Inje University School of Medicine, Busan, Korea.

Nevus sebaceus is a hamartoma of the sebaceous gland that occurs congenitally, from which various secondary tumors can arise with a prevalence of 5%-6%. Benign neoplasms commonly arise from nevus sebaceous, but they have a very low malignant potential. Two neoplasms may occasionally arise within the same lesion, but it is rare for three or more neoplasms to occur in a nevus sebaceus simultaneously. Read More
