The article reports on the case of a 37-year-old man which demonstrates the surgical treatment of metastatic melanoma. Histology of the lymph nodes showed that the had metastatic melanoma in six of 16 nodes. During laparotomy, three lesions were seen in the upper jejunum and were resected. An enlarged node in the mesentery was excised. His recovery was uneventful.

It suggests that cytokine therapy could prevent or...

    Most primary melanomas on the distal upper extremity metastasize to a sentinel lymph node (SLN) in the axillary basin, but occasionally a primary melanoma will drain to the epitrochlear basin. The relationship between tumor-draining axillary and epitrochlear SLNs is unclear. We hypothesize that...

    Background: Current treatment for melanoma of the lower limb includes excision of the primary tumor with ilioinguinal lymphadenectomy in the case of lymph node metastases. The standard surgical approach includes sectioning of the inguinal ligament to gain access to the iliac nodes....

    In Japan, elective lymph node dissection (ELND) has been the standard treatment for patients with possible nodal melanoma. Sentinel node biopsy (SNB) has now replaced ELND, not only in Japan but also worldwide. The objective of this study was to compare the interim outcomes of SNB and ELND. A...

    The article discusses the formation of lymph nodes to be the primary factor for melanoma metastasis which has a central node and it spreads regionally to surrounding lymph nodes which includes treatment of regional lymph nodes through surgical procedures, and assessing the stage of the disease.
