Abstract

Melanoma affecting two interdigital spaces has been recently described by our group for the first time in medical literature. Here we present a second patient with acrolentiginous melanoma of the sole affecting the 1st and 2nd interdigital space. The tumour was removed by delayed Mohs surgery. Due to the extension of the melanoma, digit II and III had to be removed. Staging excluded metastatic spread. The tumour was classified as pT4bN0M0.
