Abstract
The treatment of locally spread basal-cell skin cancer is very difficult and often complicated with local recurrence. Traditional techniques are sometimes insufficient for this pathology, especially for recurrent tumors. In the State Research Center for Laser Medicine photodynamic therapy had been used for treatment of 103 patients with locally spread basal-cell skin cancer, including 64 with recurrent tumors. Therapeutic effect has been achieved in all cases, including complete tumor resorption in 67% of patients. Presented paper contains analysis of immediate and long-term follow-up results.
