We report here a case of a year-old female patient presenting with brownish macules on her face, since 10 years ago, with histopathological diagnosis of lentigo maligna.
The surgical management employed was excision of visible borders with the contoured technique and immediate submission of these borders for histopathological analysis before complete excision of the tumor. This technique is a variant of staged excision, with lower rates of recurrence and acceptable aesthetic. Johnson square procedure for lentigo maligna and lentigo maligna melanoma. Predetermined margins can be inadequate because of subclinical spread, or can affect function when margins are adjacent to the eye or mouth.
To describe our 5-year experience in Nottingham of using the staged square procedure Johnson square in excising difficult facial LM and LMM. The square procedure is a staged technique useful for ill-defined lesions and for lesions that have a high recurrence rate due to subclinical spread.
It uses paraffin wax-embedded peripheral vertical sections for margin control, ensuring complete clearance as the surgical margins are usually examined at distances of mm from the periphery of the lesion. Of Sex chatroom Taohsia 21 patients, 10 needed only one stage of surgery, 6 needed two stages, 3 needed three stages and 2 needed four stages. To date, there has been only one recurrence, which was of an extensive lesion that crossed the medial canthus, making margin control impossible because of the anatomical limitations.
It attempts to conserve tissue while ensuring a higher clearance rate. Reflectance Confocal Microscopy in Lentigo Maligna. Lentigo maligna is the most common type of facial melanoma.
Diagnosis is complicated, however, as it shares clinical and dermoscopic characteristics with other cutaneous lesions of the face. Reflectance confocal microscopy is an imaging technique that permits the visualization of characteristic features of lentigo maligna. These include a disrupted honeycomb pattern and toid cells with a tendency to show folliculotropism. Poorly defined dermal papillae and atypical cells may be seen at the dermal-epidermal junction and can form bridges resembling mitochondrial structures. Other characteristic findings include junctional swelling with atypical cells located around the follicles, resembling caput medusae.
Reflectance confocal microscopy is a very useful tool for diagnosing lentigo maligna.
All rights reserved. Equivocal pigmented lesions of the head are usually biopsied to avoid inappropriate treatment. Clinical approach has evolved from simple visual examination to sophisticated techniques for selecting the biopsy sites. Punch biopsies and surgical excisions of 72 patients, 37 men and 35 women median age Accuracy of the 2 techniques in sampling a representative tissue overlapped in most cases, although RCM selected sites to biopsy with more histopathologic criteria, in particular toid spread and melanocytic nests.
Interestingly, with RCM, inflammation and melanophages were observed more in biopsy than in excision. False positive cases were not registered. Compared with the sampling at naked eye, our show that DE and RCM help selecting the most appropriate areas for biopsies, Sex chatroom Taohsia allowing not only more robust histopathologic diagnoses, but also a more accurate microstaging of tumor. Diagnosis and management of lentigo maligna : a review. Lentigo maligna is a melanocytic neoplasm occurring on sun-exposed skin, usually on the head and neck, of middle-aged and elderly patients.
It is thought to represent the in situ phase of lentigo maligna melanoma. The ill-defined nature and potentially large size of lesions can pose ificant diagnostic and treatment challenges. The goal of therapy is to cure the lesions in order to prevent development of invasive disease, and surgical excision is the treatment of choice to achieve clear histological margins.
Nonsurgical treatment modalities have been reported; however, evidence is lacking to support their use. Age, general health, and comorbidities need to be taken into when deciding the right treatment modality for each individual patient. Identification of progenitor cancer stem cell in lentigo maligna melanoma.
The potential role of stem cells in neoplasia has aroused considerable interest over the past few years. A of known biologic characteristics of melanomas support the theory that they may originate in a mutated stem cell. Melanocytic stem cell markers have been described recently. Moreover, the CD cells that show surface markers for CD34 are stem cells primitive. These stem cells are capable of differentiating into neurons, glia, keratinocytes, smooth muscle cells, and melanocytes in vitro.
The purpose of this study is to detect the expression of CD and CD34, two putative markers of cancer stem cells in the lentigo maligna melanoma.
Thirty cases of lentigo maligna melanoma were analyzed using indirect immunohistochemical staining. The vast majority of the samples analyzed showed the presence of rare cells, which were clearly positive for CD and CD Strong CD and CD34 staining was found in the outer root sheath of the mid-lower hair follicles, intermixed with atypical melanocytes extending along layers of the hair follicles.
A of these staminal cells were adjacent and intermixed with melanoma cells. This study supports the stem cell origin of this tumor and suggests that the precursor of the melanoma in question is a stem-like cell rather than the primitive melanoblast committed to be exclusively involved in melanocytic differentiation. Clinical usefulness of reflectance confocal microscopy in the management of facial lentigo maligna melanoma. Facial lentigo maligna melanoma can be a diagnostic challenge in daily clinical practice as it has similar clinical and morphological features to other lesions such as solar lentigines and pigmented actinic keratoses.
Confocal microscopy is a noninvasive technique that provides real-time images of the epidermis and superficial dermis with cellular-level resolution.
We describe 3 cases of suspected facial lentigo maligna that were assessed using dermoscopy and confocal microscopy before histopathology study. In the first case, diagnosed as lentigo maligna melanoma, presurgical mapping by confocal microscopy was performed to define the margins more accurately. In the second and third cases, with a clinical and dermoscopic suspicion of lentigo maligna melanoma, confocal microscopy was used to identify the optimal site for biopsy. Age-standardized incidence rates European standardized rateestimated annual percentage changes, and the cumulative incidence of LMM after LM were calculated.
The age-standardized incidence rate for LM increased from 0. LM incidence increased from to with 6. Published by Elsevier Inc. Ventricular tachycardia.

Incidence of lentigo maligna in Olmsted County, Minnesota, to The incidence of lentigo maligna LM may be increasing, but no population-based epidemiologic studies have been performed to our knowledge. We sought to determine the incidence of LM in Olmsted County, Minnesota, along with overall and recurrence-free survival.
Using the Rochester Epidemiology Project, we identified all adult residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota, with a first lifetime diagnosis of LM between and Medical records were reviewed to determine demographic, clinical, and surgical data, Sex chatroom Taohsia incidence and survival were calculated. Among patients identified, median range age at diagnosis of LM was 70 years.
Treatment changed over time, with Mohs micrographic surgery becoming available after No patients died of LM; 5 had local recurrence. Overall age- and Sex chatroom Taohsia incidence of LM among adults was 6. Retrospective study de and homogeneous population are limitations. The incidence of LM increased ificantly among residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota, over an extended time frame, with incidence being ificantly higher among men than women and increasing with age.
Published by Mosby, Inc. Dermoscopic clues to differentiate facial lentigo maligna from pigmented actinic keratosis. Dermoscopy is limited in differentiating accurately between pigmented lentigo maligna LM and pigmented actinic keratosis PAK.
This might be related to the fact that most studies have focused on pigmented criteria only, without considering additional recognizable features. To investigate the diagnostic accuracy of established dermoscopic criteria for pigmented LM and PAK, but including in the evaluation features ly associated with nonpigmented facial actinic keratosis.Sex chatroom Taohsia
