Dr Chaudhry response:

BAPoma: it lacks the 2 cell population, is not really polypoid and the cells are not quite right.

Asymmetric and nodule-expansive. I think this is a small cell nodular melanoma.

Dr Chaudhry's response:

The lesion showed: no loss of BAP1 expression by IHC. HMB45 stained the upper part of the lesion and Ki67 was 20% in the same area (upper part). This was a difficult case to characterise but after several opinions it was felt the junction was definitely in situ melanoma and on balance the entire lesion was a malignant melanoma and should be treated as such.
