PURPOSE To evaluate whether tumor-associated lymphangiogenesis contributes to prognosis of conjunctival malignant melanomas and to study its association with other tumor characteristics. DESIGN Nonrandomized, retrospective case series. PARTICIPANTS A total of 109 consecutive patients with primary conjunctival malignant melanoma. METHODS Proliferating lymphatic vessels were identified immunohistochemically using lymphatic vascular endothelial hyaluronan receptor-1 and podoplanin as… CONTINUE READING
