An amelanotic malignant melanoma masquerading as hypergranulation tissue

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report a case of amelanotic malignant melanoma occurring in the nail sulcus of the hallux, which on initial presentation was mistaken for hypergranulation tissue due to an in-growing toenail. We highlight the importance of this differential diagnosis as such lesions can have serious sequelae.
