Metastases from melanoma after a latency period of 34 years

In this case report, two patients with metastases from melanoma after a disease-free period of 34 years are presented. In 1983, both patients were treated for melanoma on the lower extremity with wide local excision. In 2017, they experienced unnecessary waiting time and examinations before being diagnosed.
