Abstract

Malignant melanoma is an aggressive tumor with potential to metastasize anywhere within the body. Herein, we report a 51 year male patient clinically diagnosed as diabetic foot ulcer that developed enlarged right inguinal lymph node during treatment. FNAC of right inguinal lymph node was performed. Initial cytological diagnosis of metastatic melanoma was made which lead to clinical suspicion of melanoma masquerading as diabetic foot. Cytomorphological features of metastatic melanoma are described with brief review of literature and value of cytological diagnosis is emphasized.


Keywords: Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), Lymph node, Metastatic melanoma.
