Image Annotation: Heavily pigmented melanocytic tumor present on the ear. The tumor is predominantly composed of large melanocytes with copious cytoplasm filled with melanin. Nuclear detail is impossible to discern on unbleached sections. However, examination of bleached sections (see skin_2 and skin _3) reveals that mitoses are absent , nuclear atypia is minimal, and the nuclear/cytoplasmic ratio is low, features that are most in keeping with a benign process. Melanocytoma Marcus Bosenberg

Staining Method: Hematoxylin and Eosin Staining Method

Species: Mouse
Strain: C57BL/6
