Desmoplastic malignant melanoma: the first British report.


A case report from Louisville, Kentucky was recently published in this Journal describing a patient with a desmoplastic malignant melanoma of the cheek (Man et al., 1981). Reference was made in that report to 15 previously described cases of this tumour, all from the United States of America. We wish to report a recent patient of ours with a tumour that was histologically consistent with a desmoplastic malignant melanoma but showed several atypical clinical and histological features. This is, as far as we know, the first recorded occurrence of the tumour outside the USA.
