Immunohistological characterisation of tumour infiltrating lymphocytes in melanocytic skin lesions.


BACKGROUND Although the presence of tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) is a constant feature in melanomas, their immunophenotypic characterisation is still incomplete. We hypothesise that the transition from normal skin to benign naevi (BN) to melanocytic dysplastic naevi (MDN) to radial growth phase cutaneous malignant melanoma (RGP-CMM) to vertical… (More)
