    Iwei Yeh
    Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco, USA
    J Natl Cancer Inst 105:917-9. 2013
    ..We found BRAF(V600E) mutations in the melanocytic nevi to be fully clonal, strongly suggesting that BRAF-activating mutations typically are early initiating events in melanocytic neoplasia...
  2. doi request reprint Plexiform melanocytic schwannoma: a mimic of melanoma
    Iwei Yeh
    Department of Pathology, University of California, San Francisco, CA, USA
    J Cutan Pathol 39:521-5. 2012
    ..The differential diagnosis included melanoma, melanotic schwannoma and cutaneous melanocytoneuroma, and we compare and contrast our case with these entities...

    Iwei Yeh
    Department of Pathology, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94115, USA
    Am J Dermatopathol 34:668-70. 2012
    ..We also completed array-based comparative genomic hybridization, which demonstrated gain of chromosome 6p, loss of 6p and gain of 7. These two methods of analysis support a diagnosis of spindle cell melanoma...
  4. doi request reprint Melanoma ex blue nevus: two cases resembling large plaque-type blue nevus with subcutaneous cellular nodules
    Jeffrey P North
    Departments of Pathology and Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco, CA, USA
    J Cutan Pathol 39:1094-9. 2012
    ..Molecular techniques can provide valuable insights in these types of difficult melanocytic neoplasms...
  5. doi request reprint Distinguishing neurofibroma from desmoplastic melanoma: the value of the CD34 fingerprint
    Iwei Yeh
    Department of Pathology, University of California, San Francisco, CA, USA
    J Cutan Pathol 38:625-30. 2011
    ..We conclude that CD34 fingerprint immunoreactivity is useful in distinguishing neurofibroma from early desmoplastic melanoma, especially if the fingerprint involves more than 60% of a tumor's cross-sectional area...

    Thomas Botton
    Departments of Dermatology and Pathology and Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA
