Treatment of nevus sebaceus (NS) on the scalp is usually surgical excision, but the optimal timing is debatable. The scalp presents significant challenges to the reconstructive surgeon because the lack of elasticity of the scalp makes the repair of defects difficult.

The aim was to determine the role of needle aspiration and surgical excision in the management of suppurative Bacillus Calmette Guerin (BCG) lymphadenitis. This prospective study was done in Rafha Cen...
Because infection can thwart burn healing, microorganisms, their susceptibility patterns, and the effect of tangential excision timing on outcomes of burn patients were examined.
Exophytic lesions involving the face present with an undesirable esthetic deformity and usually necessitate surgical excision. Conventional open excision techniques may lead to scar formation or pigme...
The present case describes classical intradermal nevus with intralymphatic nevus cell emboli. A 13-year-old boy presented with black colored macule on the shin 1 cm in diameter which was gradually inc...
Composite frontal scalp defects involving the frontal bone and full thickness scalp can pose a reconstructive challenge. Often, they necessitate the use of microsurgical free tissue transfer, which ca...
Two groups of patients (73 patients each) undergoing routine caesarean section has recurrent keloid at site of surgical scar. One group will undergo surgical excision of keloid. The other ...
Prognosis of burn patients has improved over the last decades. Early excision of full thickness burns is thought to be one of the key factors which have led to prognostic improvement. Best...
This study aimed to compare the outcomes of early versus late surgical resection in patients who underwent curative total mesorectal excision after neoadjuvant chemoradiation. Half of the ...
Objectives: The aim of this pilot study is to determine if implementation of a three-dimensional (3D) face tracking system with HGM can improve the reliability of lesion localization for c...
The purpose of this pilot study is to compare by pathological findings surgical excision versus neoadjuvant radiotherapy followed by delayed surgical excision of ductal carcinoma in situ (...
Usually a benign tumor, that commonly presents as a solitary blue nodule with spindled MELANOCYTES covered by smooth SKIN. Several variants have been identified, one variant being malignant. The blue color is caused by large, densely packed melanocytes deep in the DERMIS of the nevus. In CHILDREN, they usually occur on the BUTTOCKS and LUMBOSACRAL REGION and are referred to as cellular blue nevi. Malignant blue nevi are more commonly found on the SCALP.
Surgical excision of one or more lymph nodes. Its most common use is in cancer surgery. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p966)
A nevus containing melanin. The term is usually restricted to nevocytic nevi (round or oval collections of melanin-containing nevus cells occurring at the dermoepidermal junction of the skin or in the dermis proper) or moles, but may be applied to other pigmented nevi.
A syndrome characterized by lesions occurring on the face, scalp, or neck which consist of congenital hypoplastic malformations of cutaneous structures and which over time undergo verrucous hyperplasia. Additionally it is associated with neurological symptoms and skeletal, ophthalmological, urogenital, and cardiovascular abnormalities.
A benign skin lesion characterized by a zone of depigmentation surrounding the nevus.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
