Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained one error around the EQ-5D visual analogue scale (VAS) scores affecting a few patients.

In Table 4 (Table 1 here), the column presenting the correlations between the FACT-Melanoma (FACT-M) and Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC)-specific scores and the EQ-5D VAS scores have been revised. The corrected table is shown below. None of the interpretation of results or conclusions is affected.
