Abstract

Recent advances in immune modulating therapies show great promise for patients with advanced melanoma, however optimal strategies for achieving long-term disease control in locally advanced melanoma are unclear. We present two cases of neoadjuvant ipilimumab, one case in combination with isolated limb infusion (ILI) followed by surgical resection and one followed by surgery alone. Both patients have had durable responses. These cases highlight the ongoing need for prospective trials in the neoadjuvant setting.
