Black Urine and Black Pleural Fluid: A Distinctive Presentation of Metastatic Melanoma
KeywordsMelanoma, pleural effusion, diffuse melanosis cutis, black urine

Very few medical conditions can cause black discoloration of body fluids, so this should prompt physicians to search for a number of potential underlying causes.
