Reportability--Melanoma: Upon review of SINQ 20020019 and 20041034 the terms "early" or "evolving" melanoma are not reportable. Does the addition of a "Clarks Level I " change reportability? See discussion.
7/21: c/w evolving lentigo maligna
7/29: path review of bx specimen: Comment: “pattern c/w lentigo maligna”. Diagnosis: c/w evolving lentigo maligna.
10/20:Re-Exc: Recent bx site & atypical lentiginous melanocytic proliferation c/w persistent early malignant melanoma in situ, lentiginous type, Clark’s level I, margins free. The results of the previous outside pathology report were reviewed.
I know that “early” and “evolving” melanoma are not reportable, but when they give a Clark’s level, does the case then become reportable?
Early and evolving melanoma are not reportable. However, Clark level 1 is listed as synonymous with in situ on page 77 of the 2012 SEER manual.
