There is an ongoing research effort toward the direction of employing Semantic Web technologies, in order to improve knowledge representation and management in medical domains. Topic map (TM) standard is a semantic web enabling technology. In this framework, a TM-based system, that manages melanoma cases images and their related data, may play a vital role, in order to create a system that encompasses imaging diagnosis support utilities in the sensitive field of malignant melanoma. In order to support the development of such a system, the design and implementation of "Yellow TM" aiming to provide a sophisticated TM software tool, is presented.
