“This is a meaty reference covering a gamut of topics on melanoma, including controversial ones, such as melanoma risk and management in pregnancy, pediatric melanoma quandaries, and indications for sentinel node biopsy in pediatric atypical melanocytes neoplasms. A background in basic immunology and genetics will give readers an advantage in understanding the discussions and diagnostic algorithms.” (Patricia Wong, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2019)​
