Defects resulting from Mohs micrographic surgery may immediately be reconstructed with primary repair, flaps or grafts, or the wound may be allowed to heal by secondary intention. We experienced 3 cases of secondary intention healing using occlusive dressing and purse-string suture, and wounds were healed with excellent cosmetic and functional results. Therefore, we conclude that secondary intention healing of forehead and temple wounds is a safe and effective method of wound management after Mohs micrographic surgery.
