Slide 1 - 68 y/o. Caucasian MBrain Metastasis from Melanoma Shintaro Ono Neurosurgery
Slide 2 - HPI The patient is a 68 y.o. gentleman with h/o metastatic melanoma primarily on his left neck with spread to adjacent lymph nodes as well as potential metastases to liver and lung. On May 21, 2009, He presented to the BI and underwent routine follow up with brain MRI which showed a large intracranial hemorrhagic lesion in the right frontal lobe. This was new since his prior scan which was on Nov. 11, 2008. Past Medical History- Metastic Melanoma to lung and liver - DM, HTN, and AfPast Surgical History- Left lung lower lobectomy for metastasis (12/11/08) - Appendectomy 60 years agoMedicatoin- lisinopril, aspirin, warfarin Allergy NKDA Family History - Non-contributory Social History - Farmer with extensive sun exposure - Tobacco; a cigar / week (stopped in 2009) - EtOH; No, - illicit drugs; No Case: 68 y/o. Caucasian M

Slide 5 - MRI Nov. 11, 2008. May. 21, 2009. Right frontal craniotomy was done on May 22, 2009. 4.5 x 3.7cm 4mm
Slide 6 - Post-operative MRI May. 21, 2009. May. 22, 2009. He was discharged on May 26, 2009. He is taking a course of whole brain radiation therapy.
Slide 7 - The most common intracranial tumors in adults (>50% in brain tumors). In patients with systemic metastasis, Brain Metastasis occurs 10 to 30 % in adults. The incidence of brain metastases is increasing due to improved imaging tools. Lung — 16 to 20 % Renal cell cancer — 7 to 10 % Melanoma — 7 % Breast cancer — 5 % Colorectal cancer — 1 to 2 % Brain Metastasis
Slide 8 - 50% to 75% of malignant melanoma patient end up with brain metastasis. Melanoma is the third most common cause of brain metastases in US. The incidence of malignant melanoma is increasing at rate greater than any other human cancer. Brain Metastasis from Melanoma
Slide 9 - Whole Brain Radio therapy WBRT after surgery reduce the rate of recurrence and possibly prolong survival. [Wen, PY, Loeffler, JS. Management of brain metastases. Oncology (Huntingt) 1999; 13:941.][Skibber, JM, Soong, SJ, Austin, L, et al. Cranial irradiation after surgical excision of brain metastases in melanoma patients. Ann Surg Oncol 1996; 3:118.] Treatment Chemotherapy Brain Metastases from melanoma are generally resistant to chemotherapy. But, fotemustine and temozolomide have a possibility of treatment. [Jacquillat, C, Khayat, D, Banzet, P, et al. Final report of the French multicenter phase II study of the nitrosourea fotemustine in 153 evaluable patients with disseminated malignant melanoma including patients with cerebral metastases. Cancer 1990; 66:1873.] [Hwu, WJ, Lis, E, Menell, JH, et al. Temozolomide plus thalidomide in patients with brain metastases from melanoma. Cancer 2005; 103:2590. ]
Slide 10 - Craniotomy Large, single/dominant, and accessible lesions Patients with good performance status Patients with herniation or a posterior fossa mass effect Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) Small(<3cm), multiple(=or<3), and deep lesions Patients unlikely to tolerate general anesthesia. Craniotomy vs SRS
Slide 11 - Resection, Craniotomy? SRS? Whole Brain Radiation Therapy (WBRT)? Chemotherapy? or Combination? Treatment for the patient What the reason for resection surgery and following WBRT?
Slide 12 - The Patient Good performance status (KPS 90 > 70) Large (>3cm), dominant Lesion Mass Effect Resectable The lesion cannot be well controlled with external radiation alone. Reasons for Surgery
Slide 13 - Reasons for Surgery
Slide 14 - Case: 68 y/o. Caucasian M with Brain Metastasis from Melanoma The incidence of malignant melanoma is increasing at a rate greater than any other human cancer. Patient with brain metastasis from melanoma still has poor prognosis. New treatment and medical progression is needed for better prognosis. Summary
