The authors have treated 359 difficult basal cell carcinomas using the combined methods of fresh-tissue histographic excision (Molls’ chemo-surgery) and delayed primary reconstruction. We have obtained good functional and cosmetic results, a reduced period of deformity, a low incidence of complications, and a minimal rate of recurrence using this protocol. Our data support the contention that it is possible to achieve high cure rates as well as the benefits inherent to immediate reconstruction by selective application of this regimen.
