Case report. Acral lentiginous melanoma or diabetic foot ulcer?

Bristow, Ivan and Metcalfe, Stuart (2008) Case report. Acral lentiginous melanoma or diabetic foot ulcer? The Diabetic Foot, 11, (1), pp. 28-35.

Record type: Article

Late presentation and delays in recognising the skin tumour contribute to its poor prognostic profile. This paper highlights a case in which an ALM was misdiagnosed as a diabetic foot ulcer. Practitioner awareness and education is the key to early recognition of this aggressive tumour.
