Treatment of Lentigo Maligna

Lentigo maligna (LM) is an indolent form of melanoma in situ with the potential to progress to invasive melanoma. Early detection and adequate treatment prior to development to invasive melanoma are essential. Definitive excision with negative margins is currently the treatment of choice for LM. Conventional excision, Mohs micrographic surgical excision, and nonexcisional methods of treatment of LM will be discussed.
