In the second part of 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. The overall 406 malignant melanoma cases showed similar results to international references, regarding the species-and age distribution and localization of primary tumours. The most exact stadium based diagnosis was reached by whole body 18FDG PET/CT examinations. The best treatment results in dog patients were achieved by radical surgery and postsurgical fractionated teletherapy boostered with electromagnetic hyperthermia (Oncothermia).
