Nucleolar Organizer Region-associated proteins (NORs) have been evaluated on paraffin sections of a series of cutaneous malignant melanomas, stage IA at the time of the initial diagnosis. A significant difference (P less than 0.001) was found between the numbers of AgNORs in the cases which developed metastases and those without metastases: increasing values of AgNORs representing increased risk of metastases.
