Perineural Tumour Invasion (PNI) describes a particularly aggressive mode of tumour spread where cells exhibit a propensity to infiltrate neural structures very rapidly. Clinical observations in the case of Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer (NMSC) suggest that cells of an epidermal tumour can invade the nerve endings lying in deeper tissue (up to 4mm) within, at most, six weeks.
