Scope note: Neoplasia cutánea maligna que metastatiza con muy poca frecuencia pero tiene potencial de invasión y destrucción local. Clínicamente se clasifica en varios tipos: nodular, cicatricial, morfeico y eritematoide (pagetoide). Se desarrollan en la piel con anejos, con mayor frecuencia en las áreas expuestas al sol. Aproximadamente el 85 por ciento se producen en la cabeza y cuello y el 15 por ciento restante en el tronco y miembros. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Scope note: A malignant skin neoplasm that seldom metastasizes but has potentialities for local invasion and destruction. Clinically it is divided into types: nodular, cicatricial, morphaic, and erythematoid (pagetoid). They develop on hair-bearing skin, most commonly on sun-exposed areas. Approximately 85% are found on the head and neck area and the remaining 15% on the trunk and limbs. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1471)
