Malignant melanoma is a relatively rare tumor. It represents 1.4-15.7% of all malignant tumors. Melanin-containing cells are normally found in the pia mater of adult human subjects. A wide variety of disorders ranging from a simple increase in normal leptomeningeal pigmentstion to highly malignant melanoma may be encountered. However, whether benign or malignant, primary melanoma of the nervous system are extremely rare. The diagnosis was confirmed by operation and biopsy. This case, which we have experienced recently, is reported with a review of the literatures.
