Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide the basic elements for the knowledge and the clinical evaluation of melanoma and other pigmented lesions that can simulate this serious cancer. Cutaneous melanoma presents a poor prognosis if caught at an advanced stage, while with earlydiagnosis survival may be as much as 98-100%. Particular attention will be then given to the elements of early detection of this cancer and the criteria of differential diagnosis with melanocytic nevi and other pigmented skin lesions.
