Friday, March 01

J. Suzanne Mosher, MD, FAAD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- 1. Recognize the clinical and histologic variables of uncommon tumors seen in the Mohs surgical unit.
- 2. Evaluate management strategies for uncommon tumors seen in the Mohs surgical unit.
Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma represent more than 99% of tumors treated by the Mohs micrographic surgeon. During this session, we will review the clinical and histologic features of the remaining 1% of tumors seen in the Mohs unit. Recent literature with regard to management of these tumors will be reviewed. Example tumors may include desmoplastic trichoepithelioma, intravascular BCC, SCC with perineural invasion, Sebaceous carcinoma, Merkel Cell Carcinoma, Paget's Disease, Atypical Fibroxanthoma, Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans, and Lentigo Maligna.
