Welcome

Approximately 85% of all skin cancer originates in the head and neck region and incidence is rapidly increasing. Most skin cancer is diagnosed and treated by family practitio- ners and dermatologists. In case of more complex skin cancer also other medical specialists participate in a multidisciplinary approach.

This symposium deals with the process of diagnosis and treatment of primary skin cancer and its regional metastases. Also local ap physiology and planning is discussed as well as proper reconstructive ap selection and techniques for more complex skin cancer defects.

The symposium concerns a one day intensive course with compact information on head and neck skin cancer and reconstruction for residents and specialists working in the eld of dermatology, otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery, and general surgery.
