dc.description.abstractMelanoma is more aggressive with poorer outcomes in older than younger patients. Older age has been associated with greater tumour thickness, higher rates of ulceration, and high mitotic rates,1,2 but it is not clear whether poorer outcomes in the elderly are solely due to these tumour-specific features or to additional effects of age-related decline in in immune surveillance, greater comorbidity, and age-related behaviours such as delayed diagnosis.en
