Cutaneous metastatic melanoma

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In patients with melanoma, the most common sites of initial relapse are the skin and/or subcutaneous tissues, lymph nodes and lung [1]. Skin and/or subcutaneous loco-regional metastases occur in about 2-10% of all melanoma patients, whereas distant metastases of the skin, including those of the lymph nodes, representing the most common site of distant metastases, arise in about 42-59% of metastatic cases [1, 2].
