Abstract

Hypothesis: Cutaneous melanoma in nonwhite persons has a manifestation and a prognosis that are different than those of cutaneous melanoma in white persons. Design: Case series. Setting: Tertiary care university-affiliated community medical center located in a multiethnic state in which white persons are a minority of the population. Patients: Consecutive series of 357 patients with melanoma seen between January 1994 and August 2003. Main Outcome Measures: Ethnicity, age, sex, primary site, tumor thickness, nodal status, stage at diagnosis, and survival. Results: There were 208 men and 149 women who ranged in age from 15 to 93 years (mean, 58 years). Twenty-two patients initially had unknown primary sites. Of these 357 patients, 67 (18.7%) were nonwhite. There was no statistically significant difference in the age (P = .10) or sex (P = .57) distribution of these 2 populations. Nonwhite patients at initial diagnosis had thicker tumors (P = .002), more frequently had ulcerated primary tumors (P
