  • Purpose: Primary vulvar melanoma (PVM) is the second most common vulvar malignancy. Despite their distinct anatomic site and unique molecular-genetic alterations, PVMs are staged according to the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) guidelines for primary cutaneous melanomas (PCM). However, whether parameters derived for PCM also apply to PVM remain a critical yet largely unexplored clinical question. The objective of this study was to determine the parameters predictive of survival in PVM… CONTINUE READING
