Abstract
Automated computer system for differential diagnosis and defining the indications for pathogenetic therapy is described, which was used in 2816 patients and was effective in 97% of cases. The system includes computer-regulated Lancet surgical lasers (wavelength 10.6 microns, power 60 W, frequency 0.05-1.0 Hz) and Optodan physiotherapeutic laser (wavelength 0.85 micron, power 4 W, frequency 0.08-3 kHz).

Abstract
The aim of this study was to identify the prognostic variables in mucosal melanoma of the head and neck.
A retrospective review of 61 cases over a 41-year period was undertaken. Local, regional, and distant failures were major outcome measures. Demographic, clinical, and pathological parameters were identified and correlated with outcomes.
The median age at diagnosis was 68 years. Sinonasal cavity involvement occurred in 80.3% of patients and 16.4% occurred in the oral cavity. Local, regional, and distant recurrences were 60.7%, 19.7%, and 49.2%, respectively. Two-year and 5-year disease-free survivals were 25.8% and 8%, respectively. Disease-specific survival at 5 years was 28.7%. Age
