We report a series of 14 cases of nail unit squamous cell carcinoma in situ (SCCis/bowens disease/BD) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) treated with Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS). MMS has been previously reported as an ideal treatment for nail unit SCC. This series adds further weight to current literature substantiating this claim, and also demonstrates the excellent outcomes achieved with secondary intention healing.
