Of these humans death with melanoma, many die due to metastases. then again, an incredibly small variety of texts were dedicated to this clinically very important subject. the current sequence of monographs originated in discussions, which confident us of the necessity for texts on metasasis which might include not just uncomplicated and scientific observations on humans and the place neces­ sary, on experimental animals but additionally discussions of the state-of-the-art in analysis and remedy. with a view to do so in-depth strategy, for which book used to be preceded via small workshops, it used to be essential to impose barriers at the scope of the subject.

This, the second one quantity, is predicated on the same workshop on metastasis to the mind, held on the Memorial Sloan-Kettering melanoma heart in September, 1978.
