Abstract

A retrospective review and a histopathologic analysis were conducted of 18 cases of malignant melanoma of the vulvar. FIGO staging did not correlate well with survival. Microstaging, as defined by the combination of Clark's level and Breslow's depth of invasion, was the most significant prognostic factor.
