Abstract

The use of confocal microscopy is possible using two different modalities: first, at patient's bedside for a rapid in vivo diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma and second, in the operating room directly on freshly excised specimen for a fast ex vivo margin-controlled surgery. In the current review, we report the main application of confocal microscopy for basal cell carcinoma diagnosis and management in both modalities.
