Collision tumors: CAMEL, METRO and other acronyms


Kerl, K; Wolf, I H; Kamarachev, J; Cerroni, L; Kerl, H (2010). Collision tumors: CAMEL, METRO and other acronyms. JDDG - Journal der Deutschen Dermatologischen Gesellschaft, 8(6):471-472.

Abstract

We describe two exceptional collision tumors, namely: a 63-year-old woman revealing a melanocytic tumor within a trichoblastoma and a 71-year-old woman with a squamous cell carcinoma colonized by dendritic cells of a melanoma. Both neoplasms showed two different tumor components with intimate relationship. The lesions are labeled in a "playful" way with the acronyms METRO (MElanocytic tumor +TRichOblastoma) and CAMEL (CArcinoma +MELanoma) to facilitate memorization.
