Treatment

Surgical Care

Wide local excision is the treatment of choice for Dabska tumor (DT). Recurrence after excision is unusual; however, the locally aggressive nature of DTs, with either diffuse lateral expansion or deep invasion into bone, musculature, fascia, and/or tendons, indicates the importance of follow-up evaluations. Regional lymph node dissection may be indicated, especially if nodal involvement is detected. A standardized approach might be desirable. [30]
