A multivariate analysis was performed on 20 clinical and histologic variables from 327 Stage I prospectively studied melanoma patients who underwent elective regional lymph node dissection (ERLD). Primary tumor thickness, microscopic satellites, and the elapsed interval between diagnosis and ERLD, were selected as the combination of variables that were most highly associated with clinically occult regional lymph node metastases (P = 10(-15), model chi-square). Microscopic satellites were… CONTINUE READING
