Reconstruction of large defects of the upper cheek defects still remains a challenge for the surgeon, who can apply different techniques. We present a new method involving the use of a dermal regeneration template to achieve an improved, faster healing of pedicled buccal fat flap in a 75-year-old woman affected by melanoma of the upper-middle cheek. The tumor involved soft tissue, zygomatic arch and periocular fact. The choice of the surgical technique consisted first in the creation of a buccal fat pad to restore the important lack of tissue over the underlying bones, and then in the position of a dermal acellular matrix (Integra® Dermal Regeneration Template; Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation, Plainsboro, NJ, USA). Three weeks later, once the neodermal formation was finished, a split thickness graft was placed. This is a not yet described association that represents a good surgical option for the restoration of large cheek defects that allows good functional and cosmetic result in older patient when minimal surgical invasion and operative duration are necessary because of a patient's general condition. The postoperative course with this surgical technique was regular and a good functional result was achieved. This technique provides an adequate functional coverage, a restoration of soft tissue lacking and an acceptable cosmetic result without ectropion.

BACKGROUND: Non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) represents the most common cutaneous neoplasms of the head and neck. In recent years, novel non-invasive diagnostic tool have been developed, and among these we have the reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM), that offers the evaluation of the skin at real time with cellular resolution. Numerous studies have identified the main confocal features of skin tumours, demonstrating the good correlation of these features with certain dermatoscopic patterns and histologic findings. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: The aim of this analysis was to provide new insight into the role of RCM in the diagnosis and management of NMSC of the head and neck. Data comes from the most recent literature, taking into account previous essential reported information in this field. The study eligibility criteria were: studies providing update information, focusing on RCM findings in NMSC, without restrictions for age, sex, ethnicity. A search concerning the role of dermoscopy and RCM in the diagnosis of NMSC was performed on Medline. Duplicated studies, single case report and papers with language other than English were excluded from this study. EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS: RCM clues were analysed for NMSC in association with clinical, dermoscopic and histopathologic findings. Moreover, some new findings have been described and possible applications for NMSC of the head and neck have been discussed. CONCLUSIONS: RCM allows tissue imaging in vivo contributing to a more accurate diagnosis of NMSC of the head and neck, sparing time for the patient and costs for the public health system. RCM can also be used for selection of the biopsy site and it is helpful in defining the surgical safety margins to keep during the excision of skin cancers.
