Case discussion: How would you treat this patient? [05 November]
This week we have an engaging case from Dr Dave Stewart.
How would you describe the clinical and dermoscopy images below? How would you biopsy? What is the differential?
Case submitted by Dr Dave Stewart
Dave’s registrar was considering cryotherapy (without biopsy) as treatment. What is your view on this approach?
Initial history confirmed that this lesion had been previously treated, and the patient told “it was nothing serious”. Review of pathology results indicated an infiltrating BCC, excised but with incomplete margins. What is the best way to respond to such a situation?
We encourage you to participate in the case discussions and submit your own clinical images and questions, so we can all learn together.
