Microdissection allows the procurement of selective cell populations or single cells of archival sections or frossen tissue. Most cutaneous tumors can not be cultivated or consist of heterogeneous cell populations. Thus, microdissection is an important prerequisite for molecular genetic analyses of cutaneous neoplasms. This review describes the microdissection and its application in dermatologic oncology is demonstrated.
