Recurrence of linear basal cell carcinoma.

Summary of "Recurrence of linear basal cell carcinoma."

Linear basal cell carcinoma (LBCC) is a rare morphologic variant of basal cell carcinoma. We report a case of a patient with a recurrent linear lesion on the supraclavicular neck with prior repeated mild trauma to the area. The patient was diagnosed with recurrent LBCC after a prior excision of an LBCC in the same area. A review of the literature was performed, and the demographics, anatomic location, histologic subtype, treatment methods, and frequency of recurrence for all reported cases of LBCC were summarized. Because of the likelihood of subclinical spread, LBCC should be regarded as a high-risk subtype. As such, Mohs micrographic surgery or excision with complete circumferential peripheral and deep margin assessment is recommended as first-line treatment.

Factors Predictive of Recurrence, Metastasis, and Death from Primary Basal Cell Carcinoma 2cm or Larger in Diameter.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) recurrence and metastatic rates are known to be very low. The risk factors for these rare outcomes are subsequently not well-studied.

High-frequency ultrasound features of basal cell carcinoma and its association with histological recurrence risk.

Due to advances in high-frequency ultrasound technology, it is easier to detect fine structures of skin lesions. The aim of this study was to examine the ultrasonographic features and use recurrence r...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A carcinoma arising from MERKEL CELLS located in the basal layer of the epidermis and occurring most commonly as a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Merkel cells are tactile cells of neuroectodermal origin and histologically show neurosecretory granules. The skin of the head and neck are a common site of Merkel cell carcinoma, occurring generally in elderly patients. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1245)

A patched receptor that may function redundantly with the PATCHED-1 RECEPTOR to modulate hedgehog signaling. It may also play a role in epidermal development and as a TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN. Mutations in the patched-2 gene are associated with BASAL CELL NEVUS SYNDROME; CARCINOMA, BASAL CELL; and MEDULLOBLASTOMA.

A skin carcinoma that histologically exhibits both basal and squamous elements. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

A malignant neoplasm derived from transitional epithelium, occurring chiefly in the urinary bladder, ureters or renal pelves (especially if well differentiated), frequently papillary. Transitional cell carcinomas are graded 1 to 3 or 4 according to the degree of anaplasia, grade 1 appearing histologically benign but being liable to recurrence. (Stedman, 25th ed)

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
