Abstract

This study shows 56% of sMM and only 5% of SN express CD99. Eight of the sMM showed strong diffuse staining, a pattern not seen in any of the SN. This study does not elucidate the role that CD99 plays in these melanocytic processes; however, it does show that CD99 can be a useful tool in distinguishing sMM from SN.
