Perineural spread of malignant melanoma from the mandible to the brachial plexus: case report

, : Perineural spread of malignant melanoma from the mandible to the brachial plexus: case report. Journal of Neurosurgery 122(4): 784-790

Perineural spread is a well-known mechanism of dissemination of head and neck malignancies. There are few reports of melanoma involving the brachial plexus in the literature. To their knowledge, the authors report the first known case of perineural spread of malignant melanoma to the brachial plexus. Clinicoradiological and anatomopathological correlation is presented, highlighting the importance of peripheral nerve communications in perineural spread.

Photoactivated adenylyl cyclase (PAC) is a recently discovered blue-light photoreceptor that mediates photomovement in Euglena gracilis ( Iseki et al., Nature, 2002, 415, 1047 - 1051). PAC appears to be a heterotetramer composed of two FAD-binding...
