Abstract: 

Acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM) is a type of malignant melanoma (MM) that involves glabrous skin. It is the dominant type of MM in Asians, Hispanics and Blacks. ALM usually presents as a brown patch with lentiginous spots on its surface. The lesion may become ulcerated. This type of MM is prone to be misdiagnosed and when it occurs on the plantar skin its diagnosis may be delayed. Herein, a case of ALM at the fourth interdigital space of foot in a 65-year-old diabetic patient is reported. This patient had been misdiagnosed as case of cutaneous candidiasis with fissures and had received antifugal agents.
