Abstract

Vulvar melanoma is a rare type of gynaecological malignancy. Its poor prognosis and aggressive course provides it more significance than any other vulvar cancer. The knowledge about vulvar melanoma tends to be relatively low as compared to that of squamous cell carcinoma of vulva. This lack of data is due to the infrequency with which vulvar melanoma occurs in any place. In this presentation we are reporting a rare case of vulvar melanoma in a 70 year old lady diagnosed after complaint of persistent vulvar itching discharge per vaginum and a growth on labia on examination. She underwent radical vulvectomy with bilateral inguinofemoral lymphadenectomy and radiotherapy in postoperative period.
