Abstract

Primary oral melanoma is a rare neoplasm accounting for 0.5% of all oral malignancies. It has an aggressive behavior with a tendency of local invasion and distant metastases more readily than other malignant tumors of the oral cavity. Due to its rarity data on epidemiology, tumor behavior, treatment, follow up and survival of patients are mainly based on single case reports. Here we present a case of 85 years old female who presented with a hard palate blackish lesion and bilateral neck nodes enlargement, biopsy positive for malignant melanoma. With no evidence of extra oral primary melanoma evidence.
