Phenotypes, with respect to cutaneous melanocytic lesions, of 37 Duroc swine from five matings were analyzed prospectively. No evidence for a recessive or X-linked trait was found. Larger numbers of animals will have to be studied to determine whether the presence of these tumors is a multifactorial or autosomal dominantly transmitted trait.
