The importance of dermoscopy for diagnosing lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM) is well known. More recently, dermoscopy has been proposed as a useful tool also for the treatment choice and monitoring. Herein, we present an 87-year-old woman, who was successfully treated with imiquimod 5% cream after surgical persistence of residual LMM and for whom dermoscopy was helpful to assist diagnosis and assess tumor persistence after surgery and its response to topical treatment with imiquimod.

Abstract

The importance of dermoscopy for diagnosing lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM) is well known. More recently, dermoscopy has been proposed as a useful tool also for the treatment choice and monitoring. Herein, we present an 87-year-old woman, who was successfully treated with imiquimod 5% cream after surgical persistence of residual LMM and for whom dermoscopy was helpful to assist diagnosis and assess tumor persistence after surgery and its response to topical treatment with imiquimod.
