Table 2 Protocol for the Mohs method in our hospital

From: Locally advanced breast cancer made amenable to radical surgery after a combination of systemic therapy and Mohs paste: two case reports

1. Apply petroleum jelly to the surrounding normal skin, and cover with gauze to protect from Mohs paste.
2. Uniformly apply the Mohs paste at a thickness of 1mm on the surface of tumor and protect using gauze.
3. Remove the gauze and Mohs paste 24 hours after application.
4. After removal of Mohs paste, apply petroleum jelly and protect using gauze.
5. Observe the tumor at the same time every day. Necrotic tissue may be removed bluntly, or it might fall off naturally.
6. Continue above cycle every 2–3 days until the elevated tumor is flattened.
