ABSTRACT: Melanoma with signet ring cell features is an exceptionally rare variant of primary cutaneous and metastatic melanoma. The molecular mechanisms underlying this unusual cytologic phenotype in malignant melanocytes are largely unknown. In this report, we aim to add to the literature by describing the histomorphological, immunophenotypic, gene expression, and cytogenetic findings in 1 recently encountered case.
