Abstract: A gray reef shark, Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos, was captured at Enewetak
Atoll, the Marshall Islands, in 1972. Near the right pectoral fin was a large
fungating tumor. Microscopically, no evidence of microorganisms or definite
malignant transformation was observed, and inflammation and necrosis were
minimal. However, the tumor appeared to be a keloid, the first to be reported
in sharks.
