Merkel cell carcinoma

Chapter

Abstract

  • © 2012, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. All rights reserved. Currently, definitive information regarding the biologic behavior and optimal management of Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is limited given the rarity of this tumor and the lack of prospective, randomized trials, and other high-level medical evidence. The objective of this chapter is to provide those involved in the care of patients with MCC with the best evidence-based recommendations regarding diagnosis, staging, treatment, and follow-up.
