Arch Dermatol. 1988 Oct;124(10):1534-7.

Abstract

Five cases of verrucous malignant melanoma--a rare variant of melanoma that was described in 1967, but is rarely mentioned today--are presented and the clinical and histopathologic criteria defining this variant are discussed. The importance of this rare entity in the differential diagnosis of verrucous pigmented skin lesions is emphasized.
