Primary malignant melanoma of the uterine cervix



Primary malignant melanoma of the uterine cervix is a rare neoplasm with aggressive behaviour, originating from the melanocytic cells of the cervical epithelium. The diagnosis is delayed by the non-specific symptoms and is confirmed by histological and immunohisto- chemical methods, with exclusion of other primary melanoma sites. The base of the treatment is surgical excision, but there are no standard treatment recom- mendations due to the limited data. The overall prog- nosis is very poor, according to aggressiveness of the disease.

Keywords primary malignant melanoma, uterine cer- vix, rare gynaecological tumors.
