Abstract

In biopsy samples initially diagnostic of actinic keratosis, examination of step sections contributes clinically important information. Step sections are particularly useful when a clinical diagnosis of skin cancer is present. The results of this study confirm the pathogenetic importance of actinic keratosis as a precursor to fully evolved malignant neoplasia and suggest that such lesions merit thorough histological study.
