On the histological diagnosis and prognosis of malignant melanoma

Journal of Clinical Pathology
A Levene


This review deals with difficulties of diagnosis in cutaneous malignant melanoma encountered by histopathologists of variable seniority and is based on referred material at The Royal Marsden Hospital over a 20-year period and on the experience of more than two-and-a-half thousand cases referred to The World Health Organisation Melanoma Unit which I reviewed when chairman of the Pathologists' Committee. Though there is reference to the differential diagnosis of primary and metastatic tumour, the main concern is with establishing the diagnosis of primary melanoma to the exclusion of all other lesions. An appendix on recommended diagnostic methods in cutaneous melanomas is included.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
