Diagnostic utility of IMP3 in segregating metastatic melanoma from benign nevi in lymph nodes


Depending on the Breslow depth of the primary melanoma, sentinel lymph node biopsy is considered as standard of care for the staging of cutaneous melanoma, and is one of the most important prognostic factors.
