The Classic Text―Expanded, Updated...More Authoritative than Ever!
Cutaneous Melanoma is the definitive and most authoritative textbook on melanoma used worldwide. This 5th edition provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive information needed for the clinical management and scientific study of melanoma. Written by the leading melanoma experts from the United States, Australia, and Europe, this new edition collectively incorporates the clinical outcomes of more than 60,000 patients treated at major melanoma centers throughout the world.
Comprehensive Coverage―from Prevention to Advanced Treatment
This new edition provides in-depth coverage, ranging from precursors of melanoma to advanced stages of metastatic disease; from melanoma genes to population-based epidemiology; and from prevention of melanoma to all forms of multidisciplinary treatments. Basic principles of diagnosis and pathologic examination are combined with treatment approaches for the many clinical presentations. Clinical management is supported by statistical data about natural history, prognosis, and treatment results. The latest information on staging and prognosis, as well as randomized prospective clinical trials involving surgical treatment and systemic treatments, is included. This volume presents a balanced perspective of the risks and benefits involved in each treatment modality. The book also contains: 1) a comprehensive color atlas of melanoma and its precursors, 2) illustrated surgical and perfusion techniques for every stage and anatomic location of melanoma, and 3) complex genetic and molecular pathways involving melanoma biology. Every drug and biologic agent in use today is described with indications and efficacy.
Entirely Revised and Updated
Seven new chapters discuss the emerging clinical data on the use of biomarkers, adjuvant therapies, targeted therapies, and immune modulation as well as significant clinical research advances in the clinical management of melanoma. The remaining 37 chapters have been extensively updated and revised to include the latest clinical, radiological, and pathological data and clinical trial advances.
Cutaneous Melanoma, 5th Edition, retains the logical organization and clarity of expression responsible for its enduring popularity over the last 23 years. This volume will become an invaluable part of your library and a trusted resource that you will refer to again and again.

"Overall, the text is easy to use and well indexed. I find that it is my reference text of choice for any melanoma-related questions that arise during the day. The authors should be commended for their fine and highly accessible work."
―American Society for Dermatologic Surgery
"...should serve as an invaluable source of information to all clinicians involved in the care of patients with malignant melanoma and to basic scientists who want to become more familiar with various clinical aspects of the disease. I intend to keep it on my desk and refer to it in my practice."
