Although titled Cutaneous Melanoma, this authoritative reference text addresses much more than primary melanoma of the skin. The book is divided into 5 major sections: Predictive Factors That Influence Melanoma Outcome, Primary Melanoma, Regional Metastases, Distant Metastases, and Biologic and Epidemiologic Considerations. The entire clinical spectrum of cutaneous melanoma is reviewed by the editors, who include an oncologic surgeon, a dermatologist, an oncologist/immunologist, and a biostatistician. The book contains 35 chapters written by more than 60 authors, many of whom are well-recognized experts in melanoma therapy and biology.
