ABULAFIA, A.J.; SALADINO, C.N.; VINAS, V. y VINAL, M.A.. Conservative surgical management of the basal cell carcinoma infiltrating inner canthus. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.1, pp.7-20. ISSN 0376-7892.
Basal cell epithelioma is the most common malignant tumor affecting the skin. It is mainly located in sun-exposed areas of the body surface due to solar actinic radiation. The facial skin is the most exposed, and the one with the highest incidence of these tumors. The dermis normally acts as a barrier against deepening, a fact which does not occur in certain areas. Among these critical sites the inner canthus region has a critical interest due to its proximity to vital organs with doubts about eye involvement and its preservation. We comment our experience in the management of infiltrative tumors of the inner canthus, diagnostic steps and therapeutical alternatives.
