Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Primary malignant melanoma is an unusual lesion in the esophagus that is not infrequently seen in association with melanosis. A case of esophageal invasive malignant melanoma with melanosis is described in which the melanosis exhibited melanocytic atypia extending through to melanoma in situ. The authors know of no previously reported such finding.
