Abstract

The incidence of melanoma in prepubertal children is 0.3% to 0.4%, with 2 percent of all melanomas occurring in patients under the age of 20 years. Superficial spreading and nodular melanomas are the most common subtypes in childhood melanoma. This article describes conditions associated with an increased incidence of juvenile melanoma and how to best manage this disease.
