Abstract

The differential diagnosis of SC includes malignant, premalignant, metastatic, inflammatory, and eczematoid disorders, along with photodermatoses and a few rare but important disorders of the lower lip. Current treatment options include topical, ablative, and surgical therapies. Several clinical challenges are also addressed, including the issue of obtaining a high-yield diagnostic biopsy specimen while minimizing patient morbidity, field-directed treatment for SC, and strategies for combination therapy.
