Clinical Pearl: National Societies, including the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, American College of Mohs Surgery, and NCCN Guidelines, have published data that guide appropriate selection of cutaneous malignancies for treatment with micrographic dermatologic surgery (Mohs). Immunosuppression status plays a big role in Mohs AUC for determination of appropriateness of Mohs surgery for treatment of squamous cell carcinoma.
