Author information

  • 1Department of Pathology, De Wever Hospital, Heerlen, Netherlands.


A case report is presented of a 30-year old woman with a primary meningeal melanoma associated with an ipsilateral nevus of Ota (oculodermal melanosis). Nine similar cases described in the literature are reviewed including additional personal communications after follow-up of three of these patients. The mean age of the patients is 42 years. In half of these tumors a dural attachment has been documented, the present case included. All patients with a dural melanoma were alive at least 2 years and 4 months after the primary craniotomy with a maximal survival of 8 years.
