Abstract
Primary malignant melanoma of the female urethra comprises 0.2% of all melanomas and has poor prognosis. In the period 1972-1992, 75 cases of primary urethra carcinomas were treated at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Among them, only an 80-year-old woman was diagnosed with primary malignant melanoma. Despite conservative treatment, she lived for 7 years. We believe that local surgical excision can be an option for treatment in selected patients as it retains quality of life.
