Summary Primary malignant melanoma of the vagina Ugeskr Læger 2013;175(3):133-134 We describe a case of malignant melanoma (MM) of the vagina in a 77-year-old woman. The type was nodular, measuring 2,5 × 1,8 cm and located in close relation to the urethra. The patient underwent pelvic exenteration and received no kind of adjuvant therapy. Seven months later, the patient locally had recurrence of the disease. The vagina is a rare location of MM, and the literature in this regard is mostly based on case reports. There is a need for better registration of these patients in order to identify factors that predict prognosis and in order to determine the optimal treatment.
