Abstract

Melanoma is a fairly common diagnosis in dogs world-wide similarly to Hungary. It is the most frequent malignant neoplasm of the oral cavity, but its occurrence is not uncommon in other body sites such as the extremities, skin, lips, or eyes. Oral, mucosal and subungual melanomas are extremely malignant tumours with a high degree of local invasiveness and a high metastatic ability. Therefore there is an increasing demand for modern diagnostic imaging techniques and new treatment options and multimodal therapeutic protocols, since many of the patients have regional or distant metastasis at the time of presentation. In their two-part series of articles the authors compare the incidence of the disease and the therapeutic results by the data of the National Frédéric Joliot-Curie Research Institute for Radiobiology and Radiohygiene between 1992 and 2010 and the statistical results of foreign studies. In the first part they give an overview on the current diagnostic and therapeutic methods of canine malignant melanoma, based on the literature.
