Some authors view keratoacanthoma (KA) as a variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), while others consider it a separate entity that must be distinguished from SCC. Involution displayed by KA is an important difference between these two entities. It has been suggested that apoptosis plays a role in the involution process of KA, although the exact trigger for it remains unclear. A hundred and fifty specimens were included in this study, 30 cases for each of the following groups: normal skin (NS), proliferative keratoacanthoma (pKA), regressing keratoacanthoma (rKA), well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma (wdSCC), and poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma (pdSCC). They were immunohistochemically examined for the expression of p53, Ki-67, bak, and bcl-2. Significantly higher p53 and Ki-67 expressions were observed in all tumor lesions examined as compared with NS. There was higher bak expression in KAs compared to NS and a significant reduction of bak expression in pdSCC together with a significant reduction of bak expression in SCCs compared to pKA. Bcl-2 expression was similar in NS and SCCs, but was lower in rKA. We found a significant positive correlation between p53 and Ki-67, p53 and Bak in NS and examined skin tumors. Lower bcl-2 expression in conjunction with higher bak expression in rKA suggests a possible role of these apoptosis-regulating proteins in tumor regression. In contrast to this finding, a steady level of bcl-2 expression in pdSCC combined with lower bak expression levels and a high proliferation rate could contribute to progression and aggressiveness in these tumors. Bak and p53 expression is a sun-related and age-dependent process in NS and skin tumors.
