Mitotic Rate Melanoma, the number of mitoses per square millimeter based on pathological evaluation, is a prognostic factor for melanoma of the skin.
Mitotic Rate Melanoma is a Registry Data Collection Variable in AJCC. It was previously collected as Melanoma Skin, CS SSF# 7.
|00||0 mitoses per square millimeter (mm) Mitoses absent No mitoses present|
|01-99||1 - 99 mitoses/square mm (Exact measurement in mitoses/square mm)|
|X1||100 mitoses/square mm or more|
|X2||Stated as "less than 1 mitosis/square mm" Stated as "nonmitogenic"|
|X3||Stated as "at least 1 mitosis/square mm" Stated as "mitogenic"|
|X4||Mitotic rate described with denominator other than square millimeter (mm)|
|X7||Test ordered, results not in chart|
|X8||Not applicable: Information not collected for this case (If this information is required by your standard setter, use of code X8 may result in an edit error.)|
|X9||Not documented in medical record Mitotic Rate Melanoma not assessed or unknown if assessed|
