Long Term Radiation Consequences

This month we presented a case of radiation dermatitis some 20+ years following radiation treatment of skin carcinoma. This case had the classic presentation of a dry ulcer surrounded by atrophic hypopigmented skin. Clearly, incisional biopsy is recommended to differentiate this from a delayed radiation-induced malignancy. This delayed presentation of radiation dermatitis is unusual and…

Radical Excision of Melanoma in Situ

Acceptance of Residual Melanoma-In-Situ: Avoiding Cosmetic and Functional Deformation

Acceptance of residual melanoma-in-situ (lentigo maligna) after an excision can avoid cosmetic and functional deformation. Is the residual risk of recurrence and transformation into invasive melanoma low enough to warrant observation? Melanoma-in-situ (MIS) is a high risk lesion due to three primary reasons. The first is that a partially biopsied melanocytic lesion with a diagnosis…
