[Melanosis of adipose tissue in a 17-month-old German Fleckvieh bull (Bos taurus)].

Tierarztl Prax Ausg G Grosstiere Nutztiere 2019 Apr 18;47(2):121-124. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Fleischygieneamt.

At meat inspection of a 17-month-old bull (German Fleckvieh), patchy dark discoloration of various organs and tissue sites was noted that was most prominent in perirenal adipose tissue. Microscopic analysis revealed melanosis, that is a congenital melanocytic dystopia, as the underlying cause. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of melanosis detected in adipose tissue in cattle. Read More

Aggressive Primary Pediatric Intracranial Malignant Melanoma: Sphinx of the Tissue Diagnosis.

Asian J Neurosurg 2019 Jan-Mar;14(1):275-279

Department of Neurosurgery, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.

It is often intriguing to suspect and confirm the diagnosis of primary malignant melanoma (PMM) in the brain without any evidence of neurocutaneous melanosis. We report a 16-year-old male patient with malignant melanoma which intraoperatively was small sized, soft, fleshy, hemorrhagic in appearance resembling hematoma. Interestingly, the histopathology showed prominent papillary architecture with a differential diagnosis of papillary meningioma and ependymoma and perplexed the tissue diagnosis. Read More

Malignant transformation of neurocutaneous melanosis (NCM) following immunosuppression.

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Pediatrics, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York City, New York.

Neurocutaneous melanosis (NCM) is the condition of abnormal melanocyte deposition in the leptomeninges and brain parenchyma. Associated with congenital melanocytic nevi, NCM can result in neurologic deficits, hydrocephalus, and rarely, malignant transformation of cells. We present the case of a 16-year-old boy with NCM who developed malignant leptomeningeal melanoma following immunosuppression with a TNFα inhibitor. Read More

Early development of extensive acanthosis nigricans (AN) is a key feature in some patients who have hypochondroplasia (HCH) in association with FGFR3 mutations. We here report regarding five new patients with HCH who exhibited AN, and we compare their characteristics to the eight patients previously described in the literature. In these patients, the AN lesions began in childhood, and they were extensive. Read More

Section of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, University of Connecticut Health Center, 263 Farmington Ave, MC-0925, Farmington, CT, 06030, USA.

Black and brown-colored mucocutaneous lesions present a differential diagnostic challenge, with malignant melanoma being the primary clinical concern. The vast majority of pigmented lesions in the head and neck region are the result of benign, reactive factors such as post-inflammatory melanosis. However, it is not uncommon to discover a range of muco-cutaneous black and brown neoplasms in the oro-facial area. Read More

Louisiana State University, 1100 Florida Avenue, New Orleans, LA, 70119, USA.

Black and brown pigmentation of the oral mucosa can occur due to a multitude of non-neoplastic causes. Endogenous or exogenous pigments may be responsible for oral discoloration which can range from innocuous to life-threatening in nature. Physiologic, reactive, and idiopathic melanin production seen in smoker's melanosis, drug-related discolorations, melanotic macule, melanoacanthoma and systemic diseases are presented. Read More

Photo-Modification of Melanin by a Mid-infrared Free-electron Laser.

Photochem Photobiol 2019 Jan 5. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Institute of Advanced Energy, Kyoto University, Gokasho, Uji, Kyoto, Japan.

Melanin is rigidly constructed by several nitrogen-containing aromatic rings, and its excess accumulation in skin tissue is closely associated with melanosis. Although visible lasers (wavelength: 600-1000 nm) are conventionally used for the photo-thermolysis of melanocyte, several pigmented nevi are difficult to be treated. Here, we propose an alternate method for targeting the molecular structure of melanin using an infrared free-electron laser (FEL) tuned to 5. Read More

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Dec 19. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Department of Dermatology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, FL.

Background: Tumoral melanosis (TM) is a histologic diagnosis characterized by abundant pigment-laden macrophages in the dermis. It is generally thought to represent a regressed melanoma, although it has also been reported after benign pigmented lesions as well. Determining the antecedent lesion in cases of TM is of clinical importance to accurately guide therapy and prognostication. Read More

Background: Melanosis coli, a brown discoloration of colonic mucosa, is considered as a benign condition mainly observed in patients under chronic anthranoid laxatives. Recent data link this condition with an increased adenoma detection rate. Moreover, its tumorigenic potential and possible association with the development of colorectal cancer remains uncertain.
