Two cases of clear cell sarcoma of tendons and aponeuroses, one with prominent melanogenesis, are reported. One tumour arose in the left buttock of a young male and the other in the left fourth toe of a young female. Both had a rapid fatal course with local and distant metastases. Electron microscopy shows melanosomes in one case, suggesting a melanotic origin.
