Basal Cell Carcinoma Mimickers Webinar

Wednesday, August 23, 2017 • 7:30 pm CST • 90 minutes

Target Audience
ACMS Members and current ACMS & ACGME Fellows-in-Training.

Statement of Need
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. Histologic recognition is often straight-forward. However, other basaloid tumors – both benign and malignant – may mimic basal cell carcinoma. Lack of recognition may result in additional, unnecessary Mohs stages in the case of benign tumors and incomplete management in the case of malignant tumors. This webinar aims to refresh familiarity with common mimickers of basal cell carcinoma as seen on frozen section histology.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify histopathology of benign and malignant mimickers of basal cell carcinoma as seen on frozen sections.
  2. Differentiate the various basaloid tumors encountered by the Mohs surgeon.
  3. Discuss challenging cases where accurate diagnosis of benign and malignant basaloid tumors leads to precise and efficient tumor extirpation while minimizing morbidity.
