AbstractA retrospective study was undertaken of 64 Chinese patients with primary (previously untreated) basal cell carcinoma (BCC) surgically treated by the plastic and reconstructive surgery team at the Princess Margaret Hospital, Hong Kong, from January 1988 to March 1994. Sixty-three (98%) were in the head and neck region, half on the nose. It was equally common in men (mean age 69 years) and women (mean age 67). Two women (3%) were younger than 35. The rate of complete excision increased after the introduction of frozen section examination. A complete excision rate of 89% (n = 57) was achieved by 1994. We conclude that frozen section examination should be done routinely in patients having BCC excised.
