BCC of the ear linked with higher discordance between biopsy, Mohs histopathology
Biopsy alone detects fewer aggressive subtypes of basal cell carcinoma of the ear compared with Mohs histopathology, according to data presented here at the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery annual meeting. Due to a lack of research assessing histopathology concordance rates for biopsy and Mohs micrographic surgery in head and neck basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), Dr. Kira Minkis, Ph.D., of Weill Cornell Medicine, and colleagues aimed to compare rates and clinical characteristics of BCCs of the ear and face.
