is one of the subspecialties of general surgical pathology that deals with
the histologic diagnosis of skin diseases. Accurate diagnosis of cutaneous
disorders, both inflammatory and neoplastic, depends on expert clinical
as well as histologic evaluation. Dermatopathology cases include
common skin diseases as well as complex immunologic diseases, pediatric
diseases, infectious diseases, melanoma, and advanced cutaneous neoplasms.
Specimens are reviewed through routine histology as well as through immunofluorescence,
flow cytometry, image analysis, and electron microscopy.`` The University

the Duke Hospital, affiliated practices, and a referral base. About 1000
specimens are of melanoma and other atypical melanocytic lesions. Drs.
Shea and Prieto, who have joint appointments in Pathology and Medicine,
also coordinate the teaching of dermatopathology to Duke house staff
and medical students. The unit runs a dermatopathology fellowship program
certified by the American Boards of Dermatology and Pathology. Current
research activities of the unit include: melanocytic differentiation and
activation in pigmented lesions; experimental melanoma in a murine model;
angiostatin in human melanoma; cell proliferation and apoptosis in hemangiomas
of children; and pathologic effects of laser irradiation of skin and eye.``

This is a highly specialized procedure for the total removal of skin cancers

who first developed this technique approximately 50 years ago, Dr. Frederick
Mohs, Professor of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin. Removal of certain
types of cancer under microscopic control results in the smallest possible
wound and highest cure.

Timothy Corcoran Flynn, M.D. - Director. Treating Skin Cancer with Mohs
Micrographic Surgery Mohs micrographic surgery is a highly specialized
outpatient procedure which allows a physician to treat skin cancers. The
technique, created by Dr. Frederick Mohs, is as follows:
A local anesthetic (usually lidocaine) is injected
around the skin cancer. The visible portion of the skin cancer is surgically
removed. The physician then removes a thin layer of tissue
at the bed of the cancer. The entire undersurface and skin edges are then
examined microscopically. That tissue is dyed to distinguish between top and
bottom and left from right. A drawing is made so that the physician can pinpoint any
areas of tumor. Once the tissue has been removed, it is sectioned
into very thin slices and examined under a microscope. After examining the edges and underside of the
removed tissue, the physician outlines the exact location of any additional
areas of cancer. If more cancer is found, the procedure is repeated in stages until the
physician finds that no cancer cells remain.
