Ultrastructural studies were carried out on the invasive nodule of forty malignant melanomas. The findings support the concept that the fine structure of lentigo maligna melanoma is often characteristic, and differs from that of superficial spreading and nodular melanoma. The melanosomes in lentigo maligna melanoma are usually ellipsoidal and resemble those of normal melanocytes, whereas the melanosomes in superficial spreading and nodular melanoma are most often spheroidal and abnormal in… CONTINUE READING
