    Department of Surgery, Naples Community Hospital, Naples, FL, USA
    Eur J Surg Oncol 30:341-5. 2004
    ..The local regional recurrence is up to 50%, emphasizing the need for wide margins for local control. A small fraction of DFSP may metastasize, but on histological examination such tumours have features of fibrosarcomas rather than DFSP...

    Arch Pathol Lab Med 127:e155-6. 2003
    ..To our knowledge, there have been no reported cases of metastasizing syringomatous adenomas. We used sentinel lymph node mapping to identify metastatic cells, leading to a diagnosis of infiltrating syringomatous adenoma of the breast...

  5. ncbi request reprint Role of sentinel lymph node biopsy in patients with thick (>4 mm) primary melanoma
    Ira A Jacobs
    Department of Surgical Oncology, The University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, USA
    Am Surg 70:59-62. 2004
    ..Our data indicate that the status of the SLN node is predictive of disease-free survival in patients with thick melanomas. SLN biopsy is thus justified in patients with thick melanoma...

    C K Chang
    Department of Surgical Oncology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois 60612, USA
    Am Surg 69:988-93. 2003
    ..Thus, treatment for melanoma patients older than 65 should be as aggressive as in younger patients, and these patients should not be denied adjuvant treatment based on their age only...

    Department of Surgical Oncology, The University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, USA
    Am Surg 70:300-3. 2004

    Fatima Lekmine
    Department of Surgical Oncology, University of Illinois at Chicago, 840 South Wood Street, M C 820, Chicago, IL 60612, USA
    Biochem Biophys Res Commun 354:830-5. 2007
