In this paper, an interesting and a very rare case of primary spinal cord malignant melanoma which was diagnosed according to clinical, neuroradiological and histopathological criteria was presented. Surgical resection is the preferred treatment for these tumors and leads to the regression of neurological symptoms and improvement of the quality of life. The prognosis is related to the patient’s age, well-defined borders of the tumor and the absence of dissemination or local extension at the time of diagnosis. In our case, the tumor was resected totally. During follow- up period, he developed pneumonia and died one month after the surgery.

Keywords: Primary spinal melanoma, surgery, tumor

Bu makalede klinik, nöroradyolojik ve histopatolojik kriterlere göre tanısı konulan spinal kordun çok ender izlenen primer malign melanomu vakası sunulmuştur. Bu tümörler için cerrahi rezeksiyon tercih edilen tedavi şeklidir ve nörolojik semptomlarda gerileme ve yaşam kalitesinde iyileşme sağlanır. Prognoz hastanın yaşına, iyi tanımlanmış tümör sınırlarına ve tanısı konulduğu zaman lokal uzanımı ve yayılımının olmamasına bağlıdır. Olgumuzda tümör tamamen çıkartıldı. Takip döneminde pnömoni gelişen hasta cerrahiden 1 ay sonra kaybedildi.
