Abstract

Tissue from an amelanotic melanoma which involved the lung and brain was studied by electron microscopy. Endothelial fenestrae were found in the intrinsic tumor capillaries at both locations, a finding which does not appear to have been previously reported for amelanotic melanoma. Pitfalls in the diagnosis of this rare tumor are discussed.
