Case discussion: How would you treat this patient? [5 September]
In this week’s case discussion from Dr Terry Harvey, we look at a 70-year-old patient who recently had a halo split thickness skin graft on the left anterior leg to remove an infiltrative BCC. Histology margins were clear on that excision. He presented 8 weeks later as a new nodule had started growing out of the site of the skin cancer removal.
What do you think, and what would you do next?
This was diagnosed as invasive SCC occurring in a graft scar and excised with a keystone flap repair. Margins were clear on that excision too. These final images are six months post-operatively.
