Skin biopsy

Skin biopsy is a diagnostic examination involving sectioning from a morbidly changed or seemingly healthy skin area. It is a “golden rule” in dealing with cases of skin changes whose diagnosis adjudication based on clinical picture is impossible.

Indications:

  • skin changes whose diagnosis adjudication based on clinical picture is impossible.

Contraindications:

  • active viral infections (e.g. herpes) and bacterial ones in the area subjected to treatment
  • in case of taking blood decongestant ( Polocard, Acenocumarol), if it is possible, it is recommended to go off them for 5-7 days

The treatment

The treatment is performed in topical anaesthesia. A skin fragment sectioned undergoes microscopic surgical pathology.

Post – treatment recommendations

In order to stop bleeding, in the place of biopsy, a spongostan dressing is used. It should be kept for 24 hours and should not be soaked. Then, until the wound is healed, breathable dressings should be used.

Convalescence time: healing time 7-10 days
Time: 15 minutes
Anaesthesia: yes (infiltrative e.g. Lignokaina)
