Epidermotropic metastatic malignant melanoma can simulate a primary malignant melanoma. However, since therapeutic management can be drastically different for these two lesions, care must be taken in evaluating them. We report a woman with forty-eight metastatic lesions of maligant melanoma, twenty-two of which were removed and found on histologic examination to be epidermotropic metastatic malignant melanoma.
