Exam of numerous tissues shows no significant difference in staging thin melanomas

January 27, 2015

The optimal number of sections to assess in staging thin melanomas without ulceration was three, with no significant difference in examining numerous tissue sections, according to recent study results.

Researchers in New Zealand conducted a search on the Pathlab database and included 71 cases of cutaneous melanomas 1 mm or less in Breslow thickness that were diagnosed between Jan. 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013. The researchers retrospectively retrieved and reviewed slides to compare the identification of the first dermal tumor mitotic figure, if present, at four checkpoints, including the examined first, third, fifth or tenth tissue section.
