6 Article CASH algorithm versus 3-point checklist and its modified version in evaluation of melanocytic pigmented skin lesions: The 4-point checklist. 2016

di Meo, Nicola / Stinco, Giuseppe / Bonin, Serena / Gatti, Alessandro / Trevisini, Sara / Damiani, Giovanni / Vichi, Silvia / Trevisan, Giusto. ·Unit of Dermatology, Department of Medical Sciences, University of Trieste, Trieste, Italy. · Department of Clinical and Experimental Pathology and Medicine, DISM, Institute of Dermatology, University of Udine, Udine, Italy. · Unit of Dermatology, Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Ospedali Riuniti di Trieste, Ospedale Maggiore, Trieste, Italy. ·J Dermatol · Pubmed #26589251.

ABSTRACT: Dermoscopy, in expert hands, increases accuracy, sensitivity and specificity in diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions of a single operator, compared with clinical examination. Simplified algorithmic methods have been developed to help less expert dermoscopists in diagnosis of melanocytic lesions. This study included 125 melanocytic skin lesions divided into melanocytic nevi, dysplastic nevi and thin melanomas (<1 mm). We compared the 3-point checklist and CASH algorithm to analyze different pigmented skin lesions. Based on preliminary results, we proposed a new modified algorithm, called the 4-point checklist, whose accuracy is similar to the CASH algorithm and whose simplicity is similar to the 3-point checklist.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Cutaneous melanoma is an aggressive form of skin cancer. It has become an increasingly common neoplasm in the most developed countries, especially among individuals of European origin. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Anonymous data of patients with cutaneous melanoma were collected from the diagnostic database of the University Hospital of Trieste from 1 January 1990 to 10 December 2013. Our study is based on a population which was constant over the period of observation; it was also well-defined and characterised by unrestrained sun exposure. RESULTS: The number of cutaneous melanomas increased during the period of observation with a seasonality trend and gender related differences both for anatomical sites distribution and stage of the disease. Moreover, 6% of our cohort developed multiple melanomas. CONCLUSIONS: In a well-defined population devoted to excessive sun exposure the frequencies of skin melanomas roughly doubled from 1990 to 2013 following a seasonal trend. In that population, prevention efforts according to gender specific risk behaviour, as well as follow-up programmes both for evaluation of metastatic spreading and for early diagnosis of additional skin melanomas, are crucial due to gender specific differences and to the occurrence of multiple melanomas.

ABSTRACT: AIM: Accuracy in melanoma detection is important to recognize early curable melanomas and to minimize the unnecessary excision of benign lesions. The aim of this paper was to evaluate melanoma screening accuracy of Italian pigmented lesion clinics in terms of number needed to excise (NNE), melanoma thickness, and number of melanomas diagnosed during patient follow-up. METHODS: Information on all skin tumors excised in 2011 were extracted from the databases of the participating centers. Information whether the lesion was excised at the baseline examination or during patient follow-up was recorded, as well as the overall number of patients examined in each center in 2011. RESULTS: After e-mail solicitation, 22 of 40 centers agreed to participate. A total of 8229 excised lesions were collected. The overall number of examined patients was 86.564, thus 9.5% of screened patients had a lesion removed. Of the excised lesions, 866 were diagnosed as melanoma (1% of examined patients) and 5311 (88.9%) were melanocytic nevi. Three NNE were calculated giving values of 7.9 excised lesions to find 1 melanoma, 7.1 melanocytic lesions to find 1 melanoma, and 3.7 lesions to find 1 skin malignancy. The median melanoma thickness was 0.6 mm, with only 15.1% of melanomas ≥ 1 mm of thickness. Melanomas detected over time were 96 (11.1%; mean thickness, 0.3 mm), with 15.6% of lesions excised after short-term follow-up and 84.4% after long-term follow-up. CONCLUSION: The NNE values comparable to those achieved in specialized clinical settings and the high number of early melanomas diagnosed at the baseline examination or during patient follow-up indicate a high level of accuracy in melanoma screening achieved by Italian pigmented lesion clinics.

9 Article The role of O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase in a long-surviving metastatic melanoma. 2014

Gatti, Alessandro / di Meo, Nicola / Stinco, Giuseppe / Malagoli, Maria / Bonin, Serena / Trevisan, Giusto. · ·J Cutan Med Surg · Pubmed #24377476.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Brain metastases commonly occur in patients with metastatic melanoma and are associated with a poor prognosis. Only a few chemotherapeutic agents have been shown to be potentially active. Resistance to chemotherapy is one of the main limitations to treatment. A key mechanism of resistance is O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT). The methylation of its promotor could inhibit the activity of this enzyme; consequently, it is very important to evaluate the methylation status of all available specimens. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a long-surviving patient in whom combination treatment with an alkylating agent inhibiting MGMT, such as temozolomide, was useful in clinical control of the disease.
