AbstractWe have investigated 16 cases of cutaneous malignant melanomas and 34 cases of various types of neavi for formaldehyde-induced fluorescence. All cutaneous malignant melanomas (100%), but only two out of 34 naevi (5.88%) showed FIF positivity. The significance of this finding as a predictor of biological behaviour is discussed.
