A shave biopsy is usually the most superficial of the skin biopsies and particularly useful when the lesion is in or close to the epidermis. A shave biopsy is best for pedunculated, papular, or otherwise exophytic lesions. It is particularly useful for diagnosis of basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, seborrheic keratoses, warts, intradermal nevi, and pyogenic granulomas.

The best results in cellulitis are obtained when the leading edge is injected with nonbacteriostatic saline using a 20-gauge needle mounted on a tuberculin syringe.
