Cutaneous Melanoma: A Pocket Guide for Diagnosis and Management serves as an easy-to-consult, short, and schematic reference providing guidelines for diagnosing and managing melanoma in the context of various clinical scenarios. In the daily routine of a busy clinician, there is a need for schematic reference tools that allow quick consultation for immediate decisions. Melanoma is a deadly disease that should be promptly managed following precise and evidence-based guidelines.

The guide contains many schematics and figures, vastly outnumbering the pages dedicated to text. This guide follows the sequence of a real clinical setting, going from the first screening visit to the final stages of terminal patients.

  • Provides a quick-access resource for diagnosis and treatment of melanoma patients at all stages
  • Includes succinct guidelines, schematics, and figures for busy clinicians
  • Concludes with a section addressing special clinical situations, including melanoma in pregnancy, pediatric melanoma, familial melanoma and MPM, atypical Spitz tumor, occult primary melanoma, and the histopathologic gray zone

He is also author of 3 books on the subject (two published by Elsevier, one by Springer). Dr. Argenziano is Secretary of the International Dermoscopy Society and is the Congress Secretary of the First Congress of the International Dermoscopy Society in Naples in April 2006 ( His research on melanoma is very well regarded in the field.

Her research interests are focused on the use of imaging instruments such as dermoscopy, and confocal laser microscopy to recognize skin cancer early in its development. She pioneered the use of ex vivo fluorescence confocal microscopy for micrographic Mohs surgery applied for basal cell carcinoma and other visceral tumors. She frequently lectures on these topics both nationally and internationally being the second Author publishing on this topic (source Scopus, December 2016) for a total of 250 papers (H-Index 28; citations 2702).
