Abstract

Rarely occurring mucosal melanomas constitute a distinct biologic and prognostic disease. Only sporadic cases of paediatric mucosal melanomas have been reported. A case of a primary amelanotic oral melanoma in an adolescent girl is presented. Pathomorphology of mucosal/oral melanomas are also presented and their epidemiology and prognoses are discussed.
