Dermatopathology epigenetic

Haider K Bangash, Alison Romegialli, Soheil S Dadras
With the advent of genetic and epigenetic research, molecular techniques could someday be used to discriminate nevus from melanoma so that ambiguous melanocytic lesions could be more accurately classified or that prognostication could be improved in melanoma patients. That promised day might be closer than realized. The last 20 years of research in cytogenetic and genetic alterations in melanoma have culminated in defined chromosomal lesions discriminating benign from malignant melanocytic tumors. Exploiting these differences, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) can reproducibly discriminate unequivocal melanomas from melanocytic nevi with high sensitivity and specificity...
