abstract

  • The authors' data suggest that improvements have been made in the early detection of SSM but not NM. Modifications of current screening practices, including increased surveillance of high-risk patients with an emphasis on the "E" for "evolution" criterion of the ABCDE acronym used for early detection of melanoma, are thus warranted.
