Primary pineal melanoma: case report.

Author information

Division of Neurosurgery, UCLA School of Medicine.


Primary melanomas of the central nervous system are unusual, and those in the pineal region are exceedingly rare. We present a case of primary pineal melanoma in a 60-year-old man. The lesion was subtotally resected through an infratentorial, supracerebellar approach. The clinical features and the histological findings are discussed. Eight previous case reports are reviewed.
