Meet the child
Charming girl Nickole has a giant congenital dangerous birthmark, a nevus, located in the area of left arm. This neoplasm, in addition to the aesthetic component, represents a potential hazard - it grows with the growth of the child and can at any time degenerate into a malignant formation of skin, melanoma. Surgical excision is the standard of care.

The tissue expansion for the treatment of giant congenital melanocytic nevi is best method to choose and exposes potential advantages over traditional techniques. This method allows you to eliminate significant area defects with a complete absence of scars, optimal aesthetic and functional results can be obtained using the method. This will require several stages of surgical treatment.

There are 3 stages in the treatment of giant congenital melanocytic nevi of the upper extremities using tissue expansion: first, the expander is inserted into the subcutaneous pocket; second, the expander is removed, lesions were excised, and the wound of the upper extremity is placed into the pocket to delay healing; third, the residual lesion is excised and the pedicle is removed. The pedicle flap is then unfolded to resurface the wound. 

A surgical operation will be performed by specialists of the Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University, Moscow. They have many years of experience in eliminating of such disorders. 

Thanks to your help, dear benefactors, the girl has already successfully passed three stages of treatment. Now Nicole needs to go through the next stage of treatment in Moscow.

Dear benefactors, fundraising is over! Thank you for your help!
Together we make a difference!
