Abstract Shave excision is a useful technique for the treatment of superficial solar lesions. The most common of these is the solar keratosis, which can be a red or gray scaling lesion. This can at times be difficult to differentiate from the superficial basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma or their more infiltrating types. Shave excision gives the advantage of a histopathologic report. Lesions found to be infiltrating or in danger of recurrence can then be further excised. The cosmetic appearance of the healed shave excision site is generally quite good, although it can be paler than the surrounding skin. If this is likely to be a problem, the shave graft can be applied, as with deeper shave excisions. A thin shave graft also can be used to repigment pale scarred areas. A series of 1313 shave excised lesions is analyzed.
