Abstract

4 cases of malignant melanoma of the vulva are presented. They are evaluated not only in terms of Clark's index but also depending on their depth in mm within the vulval skin. Of these four cases, three radical Histological examination of all lymph nodes gave negative results: the three patients had inguinal and pelvic lymphadenectomies respectively (one patient was found to be inoperable) to 1.2 mm in depth and there have now been lesions of less than 1.5 cm in diameter and 0.7 vulvectomies were carried out with inguinal or no signs of recurrence for 6.3 and 5 years respectively. The most favourable prognostic indicators in these cases are discussed, remembering that diameter and depth were found to be advantageous in the cases considered. The scarcity of these cases, however, does not permit conclusions to be drawn. A common data bank should be set up so that these rare tumours can be studied.
