Pathology of challenging melanocytic neoplasms. Diagnosis and Management. Christopher R. Shea, Jon A. Reed, Victor G. Prieto (Editors). Springer (2015)
Each of the procedures described above produces a specimen that can be assessed for adequacy of local therapy. Chapter 2 will address the reporting of melanocytic lesions including recommendations for adequacy of surgical margins. Surgical margins can be evaluated for most specimens regardless of biopsy/surgical technique. A microscope fitted with a calibrated ocular micrometer facilitates measurement of distance between the lesion and the surgical margin. Larger excisions may be measured with a ruler after marking the coverslip above the peripheral extension of the lesion under low magnification. These measurements may be reported directly or incorporated with a recommendation for further therapy based upon current consensus [9–19].
