Skin punches

As skin samples, punch biopsies of all dermal layers with a diameter ≥ 0.6 cm are to be submitted. Primary lesions from several locations should be selected. The biopsied area should not be pre-treated by scraping or shaving. The anamnesis should contain all relevant data which might be important for the diagnosis. It is recommended to use our submission form Pathology, which especially focuses on skin and tumour diagnostics, but also leaves room for any other type of anamnesis.
