We describe an unusual variant of intradermal malignant melanoma without any junctional component. The lesion differed from other intradermal melanomas in that it was devoid of pigmentation and was composed of mainly spindle-shaped cells. Within the lesion, there were areas of pseudoglandular and myxoid changes resembling the rare myxoid melanoma. In addition to this, there were areas with an alveolar-like architecture containing nested groups of cells.
