Black pleural effusion due to metastatic melanoma

A case

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Black pleural effusion is seen in numerous conditions, including fungal infections, melanoma and haemorrhage. The examination of cells in fluid along with special stains performed on the same can lead to definite diagnosis in such cases. About 10 cases of black pleural effusion have been reported in literature. However, we present a unique case of pleural effusion due to melanoma, without a known primary skin lesion but from lung.
