    Catherine,

    I was browsing the newly diagnosed forum when I saw a reply in which you stated that recent research might cast doubt on the extent to which mitotic rate affects prognosis.

    Do you have any links? I would love to see that. Has anyone revisited the extensive regression issue lately?

    I’m not sure where I saw that as I dig back. But I was assured by Dr. Mihm on his webinar that mitotic factor is still deemed very important! So I will go with him on that. I did have a recent patient with a shallow low risk melanoma but high mitotic. Her SLNB was negative so who knows?
