Chromosome banding analysis was performed on five cases of human malignant melanoma. Results demonstrated a variety of chromosome alterations, including deletion or translocation of chromosome 6q, in four of five cases. A comparison of our results with previously published studies suggests that chromosome 6q may represent a specific site of chromosome aberration in malignant melanoma.
