Merkel cell carcinoma is an uncommon but not rare aggressive cutaneous malignancy. It has many similarities to melanoma, particularly in the need for aggressive multidisciplinary treatment, but far less is known about this disease by most practicing physicians. This book summarizes all of the existing knowledge about Merkel cell carcinoma and provides a much-needed perspective on future opportunities for diagnostic and therapeutic advances. It offers practical "how to" advice on diagnosis, treatment and follow-up, and also insight into how to establish a multidisciplinary Merkel cell carcinoma clinic. In addition, it will serve as a unique resource for trainees (medical students, residents and fellows) as well as for Merkel cell carcinoma patients and their advocates and caregivers. There is currently no such textbook, even an outdated one, covering this topic.
