About this book

Merkel Cell Carcinoma is one of the first comprehensive, single-source clinical texts on the subject. Although not as common as melanoma, Merkel cell carcinoma is not rare – and it is both more deadly than melanoma and increasing at an epidemic rate. The book is clinical in focus and emphasizes treatment of this poorly understood cancer. Contributing authors include dermatologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists from the US and around the world.
