Abstract: In malignant melanoma (MM), there is an urgent need to identify new markers with predictive value superior to the traditional clinical and histological parameters. Angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis have been recognised as critical processes in tumour growth and metastasis development and numerous studies have evaluated the significance of these parameters in predicting the prognosis in solid tumours, including MM.
