Mushroom-Like Skin Tumours: Report of Three Cases
Keywords:Mushroom-like growth, Skin tumours, Melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, Basal cell carcinoma, Surgery
AbstractMushroom like the growth of skin tumour is a rare phenomenon although described already in 1806 by Alibert, who focused on mycosis fungicides. We identified only four case reports in PUBMED database using the terms "mushroom-like growth" and "skin tumour". We analysed our files and identified three elderly female patients (69 to 94 years old). Histological diagnosis was melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. All tumours could be completely removed by wide excision or delayed Mohs surgery. No metastatic spread was noted.
