Primary malignant melanomas of the ovary are extremely rare. We present a case of primary malignant melanoma arising from a dermoid cyst.
The most challenging aspect of the tumor is late diagnosis, most often after distant metastasis as most patients do not present with significant symptoms. Pelvic ultrasound with Doppler can raise the suspicion of malignancy but it is not diagnostic. Pelvic MRI with contrast can also give valuable information to indicate early surgical intervention. Malignant melanoma of the ovary is more commonly a secondary tumor to a distant primary.
