Primary malignant melanoma arising from the leptomeninges is a rare entity. We report two cases of primary intracranial melanoma developed in one aged 65 years female and the other 70 years male. One case died 2 years after the operation, and the other case is still living more than 1 year after operation. Both cases seems to have a relatively long survival. The literature on this subject is briefly reviewed.
Key Words: Melanoma; Leptomeninges
