We detected cytoplasmic estrogen receptors (ER) in only 4 of 34 (12%) patients with malignant melanoma. The titers as assayed by the dextran‐coated charcoal method were 3, 3, 4, and 5 fmol/mg, respectively. Our data indicate that the incidence of melanoma with detectable ER is low, which suggests that any potential clinical usefulness of the ER assay in melanoma might be limited.
