Title:
Malignant melanoma in children and adolescents.
Authors:
Pratt, C B; Palmer, Michael K; Thatcher, Nick; Crowther, Derek
Abstract:
Thirty-one children and adolescents with malignant melanoma were treated at the Christie Hospital and Holt Radium Institute between 1945 and 1977. Locations of primary lesions included head-neck 14, trunk nine, and extremity eight. Twenty-five patients had clinically localized tumor at diagnosis, four had regional disease, and two had generalized tumor. Surgery was the primary modality of therapy. Fifteen patients survive without active disease from two years to more than 18 years, and 16 patients died of disease.
