Abstract

The National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference on Diagnosis and Treatment of Early Melanoma brought together experts in dermatology, pathology, epidemiology, public education, surveillance techniques, and potential new technologies, as well as other health care professionals and the public, to address (a) the clinical and histological characteristics of early melanoma; (b) the appropriate diagnosis, management, and follow-up of patients with early melanoma; (c) the role of dysplastic nevi and their significance; and (d) the role of education and screening in preventing melanoma morbidity and mortality. Following 2 days of presentations by experts and discussion by the audience, a consensus panel weighed the evidence and prepared a consensus statement. The panel agreed (a) that melanoma in situ is a distinct entity that can be treated effectively by surgery with 0.5-cm margins and that thin, invasive melanoma
