Reportability--Melanoma: Per SINQ 20020019 and 20041034 the terms “early” and “evolving” in situ melanoma are not reportable; however, does the addition of “Clarks level I” change reportability? See Discussion.
07/21/12 Biopsy: Consistent with evolving lentigo maligna.
07/29/12 Path review of biopsy: Consistent with evolving lentigo maligna.
10/20/12 Re-Excision: Atypical lentiginous melanocytic proliferation consistent with persistent early malignant melanoma in situ, lentiginous type, Clark’s level I, margins free.
Should the statement of Clark level 1be used to accession this case?
This case is reportable. Mention of Clark Level 1 can be interpreted as synonymous with in situ disease, making this case reportable.
Early and evolving melanomas are not reportable. However, Clark level 1 is listed as a term that is synonymous with in situ disease per the MP/H Rules, Terms and Definitions for Melanoma and the 2012 SEER Manual.
