Abstract

Mohs micrographic surgery is a subset of staged surgical excision, whereby removal of tissue in each stage is driven by the histological findings from the previous stage. The most common tumors that are encountered using this technique are basal and squamous cell carcinomas. The excised specimens are usually processed using the fresh frozen technique, although the original technique used fixed tissue sections.
