ABSTRACT
Malignant melanoma of the spinal cord is a rare tumor 3,8,9,12 The melanomas that originate in the meninges bear a general structural resemblance to those arising elsewhere, but it is questionable whether they ever metastasis outside the central nervous system7. If can be also argued that the primary central nervous system melanoma could actually be a metastasis from an occult primary site in the skin, esophagus, rectum or other sites6. We are reporting a case of malignant melanoma involving the cervical spinal meninges and hard palate.
