Evaluation of a malignant tumor in the scalp

Japanese Journal of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery 31(5): 432-439
Evaluation of a malignant tumor in the scalp
We have treated 10 cases of malignut tumors in the scalp during the past 9 years. In this series we have experienced 7 patients with a squamous cell carcinoma, 2 with a basal cell carcinoma, and 1 with a malignant hemangioendothelioma. After surgically resecting these tumors, the defects were covered by a free skin graft, or a local flap, or a free musculocutaneous flap. Recurrence occurred in 2 cases of squamous cell carcinoma and in the case of the malignant hemangioendothelioma. In this paper we discuss the problems concerning the therapy of these malignant tumors.
