The nipple is an unusual site of cutaneous melanoma with only few cases described in literature. We herein report an additional case of malignant melanoma arising on the nipple of a 47-year old woman. The nodular, ulcerated lesion was removed surgically and the diagnosis was that of a vertical growth phase melanoma. The melanocytic origin of the tumour was confirmed by immunohistochemistry. The case pursued a poor clinical outcome with distant metastases and death of the patient.

Abstract

The nipple is an unusual site of cutaneous melanoma with only few cases described in literature. We herein report an additional case of malignant melanoma arising on the nipple of a 47-year old woman. The nodular, ulcerated lesion was removed surgically and the diagnosis was that of a vertical growth phase melanoma. The melanocytic origin of the tumour was confirmed by immunohistochemistry. The case pursued a poor clinical outcome with distant metastases and death of the patient.
