CO2 Laser Treatment of Actinic Cheilitis Associated with Squamous-cell Carcinoma of the Lower Lip

Walter Niccoli-Filho/Aline Rose Cantarelli Morosolli

Actinic cheilitis is a premalignant alteration of the lip caused by chronic exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation, and has the potential to evolve into a squamous cell carcinoma. A case of CO2 laser treatment of actinic cheilitis with squamous cell carcinoma of the lower lip is presented, emphasizing the importance of early detection. The lesion was delimited and the CO2 laser was used in continuous mode with the following parameters: 0.8 mm focus, 4 W, power density of 512 W/cm2, fluency of 0.154 J/cm2. The results showed a functional and esthetic result of excellent quality.
