Staged excision for lentigo maligna and lentigo maligna melanoma: A retrospective analysis of 117 cases
Head and Neck Neoplasms
Hutchinson's Melanotic Freckle
Neoplasms, Multiple Primary
This study corroborates that the standard excision margins for LM and LMM are often inadequate and occult invasive melanoma occurs in LM. An excision technique with permanent sections using a team of dermatopathology and surgery that carefully examines the central tumor and the surgical margins is reliable for the treatment of LM and LMM.
