Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy in Histologically Ambiguous Melanocytic Tumors With Spitzoid Features (So-Called Atypical Spitzoid Tumors)

The distinction of Spitz nevi from melanomas with spitzoid morphology can be difficult. For lesions with overlapping histopathologic features, it may be impossible to predict their malignant potential with certainty. The current study evaluated the role of sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in patients with such atypical spitzoid tumors. The clinical and… CONTINUE READING
