The epithelioid blue nevus: a multicentric familial tumor with important associations, including cardiac myxoma and psammomatous melanotic
A study of the histogenesis of experimental melanotic
tumors resembling cellular blue nevi: the evidence in support of their neurogenic origin.
The presence of these two abnormalities represents a phenotypic marker for more profound melanotic
infiltration of the leptomeninges, which increases the risk of malignant transformation.
Sigmoid gangrene is seen in 6.1-93.4% of cases with sigmoid volvulus (SV).1,2 Although some clinical and laboratory findings such as melanotic
stool, fever, leucocytosis, abdominal guarding/rebound tenderness, hypotension/shock, somnolence and metabolic acidosis suggest the sigmoid gangrene, most of them generally fail in accurate diagnosis.3,4 Similarly, although some radiological studies including Doppler ultrasonography, angiography or scintigraphy demonstrate the vascular occlusion, they are generally inadequate in determining sigmoid gangrene.5 When considerations are suitable, endoscopy identifies mucosal viability.

Female dogs, and German Shepherd Dogs in particular, are predisposed to a melanotic
growth along the limbus of the eye.
Brain MRI was consistent with the typical melanotic
pattern of malignant melanoma with hyperintensity on T1-weighted images and hypointensity on T2-weighted images.
macule, sometimes called melanocytic activation, is the most common subtype of melanin-derived LM in adults, Dr.
pigmented macules are dark brown or bluish brown in color and 1-5 mm in size; these lesions can occur at many sites on the body in children, while in adults, the characteristic buccal lesions are most evident.
Temporal bone myxomas may be related to the Carney complex in some cases, characterized by various cardiac and cutaneous myxomas, melanotic
schwannomas, endocrine tumors and cutaneous pigmentary manifestations (1-3, 7).

In some cases, malignant lesions, such as metastatic carcinoma, melanotic
melanoma, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, can be a differential diagnosis .
