Between 10 % and 35 % of all melanomas show histological regression. That is, there is an area within the melanoma where the tumor retreats or disappears to be progressively replaced by fibrosis with presence of melanophages and variable degrees of inflammation, and neovascularization. Such regression is generally considered an indicator of poor prognosis(More)
Recent reports suggested frequent occurrence of cancer associated somatic mutations within regulatory elements of the genome. Based on initial exome sequencing of 21 melanomas, we report frequent somatic mutations in skin cancers in a bidirectional promoter of diphthamide biosynthesis 3 (DPH3) and oxidoreductase NAD-binding domain containing 1 (OXNAD1)(More)

BACKGROUND While locoregional cutaneous metastases (in transit and satellite) in melanoma have received little attention from researchers to date, they have pathogenic and prognostic features that distinguish them from other forms of locoregional recurrence. Identifying predictors of these metastases would be of great value for their prevention, early(More)
A high number of nevi is the most significant phenotypic risk factor for melanoma and is in part genetically determined. The number of nevi decreases from middle age onward but this senescence can be delayed in patients with melanoma. We investigated the effects of nevus number count on sentinel node status and melanoma survival in a large cohort of(More)
We report the case of a 66-year-old man who consulted with a 3-week history of a rapidly growing asymptomatic lesion on his left cheek that for the previous week had prevented him from opening the eye on that side (Fig. 1). Two years earlier at another center the patient had been diagnosed with a primary systemic CD30 + anaplas-tic large-cell lymphoma(More)
INTRODUCTION Surgical excision with margins of 0.5cm is the standard treatment for lentigo maligna (LM). Excision, however, is often incomplete as many of these tumors have indistinct borders. OBJECTIVE To identify clinical predictors of subclinical extension in primary and recurrent LM of the head and thereby determine which lesions might require wider(More)

69 Myxoid DFSP expresses apolipoprotein D and presents with a storiform pattern and characteristic subcutaneous infiltration. Diagnosis is confirmed by detection of the chromosomal translocation t(17;22). The differential diagnosis should include benign myxoid lesions with spindle-shaped cells (myxoid neurofibroma, superficial angiomyxoma, mucous cyst),(More)
