Issues in Dermatopathology
There are few topics in clinical dermatology and dermatopathology more common than the determination of surgical margins for a basal cell carcinoma. Surprisingly, there are still many controversial issues as to what exactly constitutes a true negative margin. This case discussion was originally presented in our sister site, Got Path? The response from surgical pathologists and dermatopathologists alike was so overwhelmingly positive, that I was encouraged to post it in our site as well.

When you have reviewed the case and discussion, please comment, I will post them anonymously.
