The Center provides a range of diagnostic and predictive tests in dermatopathology. More than 9 thousand histological skin biopsies are evaluated annually for neoplastic and inflammatory conditions.

Direct immunofluorescence procedures (DIF) for skin biopsies are performed in our laboratory (IgA, IgG, IgM, C3).

Unresectable or metastatic melanoma is tested for BRAF mutations. A BRAF-V600 mutation is identified in approximately half of patients with cutaneous melanoma and is a predictive biomarker for treatment with BRAF inhibitor.
