Malignant melanomas of the oral and sinonasal mucosa are rare tumors. Amelanotic variants can, on occasion, be difficult to recognize by routine light microscopy. Immunohistochemical studies may be needed for a final diagnosis. A number of new monoclonal antibodies to melanocytic differentiation antigens have been studied recently on primary cutaneous and metastatic melanoma. However, little is known about these antibodies for the diagnosis of mucosal melanomas. In this study the authors… CONTINUE READING
