This is a clinical practice guideline for adults with melanoma. The guideline examines the use of sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy as a method for identifying nodal metastases, and provides recommendations on which patients should receive SLN biopsy based on the size and morphology of their melanoma. The guideline also discusses the appropriateness of completion lymph node dissection (CLND) as a method of treatment.
