Congenital malignant melanoma.

Abstract

A 6-week-old girl with congenital melanoma of the skin is reported and the literature is reviewed. We believe this to be the first case of congenital melanoma in a black infant who had no underlying giant melanocytic nevus. Because of the significant relationship between the early treatment and prognosis of malignant melanoma, we wish to alert pediatric clinicians to the existence of this rare congenital neoplasm.
