Case discussion: How would you treat this patient? [14 June]
This week we have an interesting case discussion from Dr Saad Raheem Abed in Iraq at the Alhussain Teaching Hospital. A 30-year-old man has been watching this pigmented lesion over the last two years. His wife has prompted him to consult his GP. His GP photographs the lesion using a dermatoscopic attachment for his phone, and sends these images via the local tele-dermatology service.
- 30-year old patient
- Pigmented lesion noticed over 2 years
What do you think?
The pathology report returns showing malignant melanoma, Breslow thickness 1.4mm, Clark level III, with ulceration and mitoses count greater than 5 per mm².
What is the management for this patient?
We encourage you to participate in the case discussions and submit your own clinical images and questions, so we can all learn together.
