Case Studies

57-year-old woman with 40-year history of growth on right mid back that has changed in color and size. This is a 2.2cm rough plaque with variable colors. Previous biopsy done 15-20 years ago was benign. Patient has a history of BCC and SCC. Biopsy  was read as a squamous cell carcinoma by a dermatologist.

89-year-old man presents with several month history of lesion on bottom lip. A biopsy was taken on 8-9-17 and showed severe squamous atypia without ruling out deeper SCC. Excision of lesion done 9-6-17 showed invasive squamous cell carcinoma with foci of moderate squamous dysplasia from 9 to 3 o’clock. Patient has history of BCC, SCC, and melanoma in situ.

Patient history of melanoma began in 2001 as a pink macule of the right medial cheek. Original biopsy diagnosed it as a melanoma in situ in 2013. Margin excision was performed leaving the central specimen in place. When the central specimen was excised and submitted to pathology, invasive melanoma was found. The melanoma was 1.13 mm in depth without other high risk features. An upper cervical lymphadenectomy including sentinel lymph node excision found no melanoma in 2013...

85-year-old man with history of treated scalp melanoma presented with a 1 month rapidly growing scalp nodule. The original melanoma was treated in 2014 with excision, then re-excision of recurrence, and post-operative radiation in June 2015. The wound developed skin breakdown and osteoradionecrosis and was treated with serial outer table of calvarium debridement.
