The majority of locoregional recurrences in melanoma occur in the form of intradermal or subcutaneous local or in-transit metastasis. In-transit melanoma represents contamination of the lymphatic space that, if treated, can result in long-term cure in a subset of patients. The management of in-transit metastases is challenging, since the treatments ...

Melanomas are malignant neoplasms of melanocytes developing predominantly in the skin, but occasionally arising from eyes, mucous membranes, and the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS can be affected by a spectrum of melanocytic lesions ranging from diffuse neurocutaneous melanosis, to a focal and benign neoplasm (melanocytoma), and to an ...
