We have reported a case of dumbbell shaped maligfnant melanoma which developed and formed a large mass(2x7x5 cm) in the frontal scalp at the midline, eroded the bone, and invaded directly into the epidural region through the bony defect and formed another large tumor(3x7x8 cm) in the frontal fossa. Several small nodules of malignant melanoma were found in the anterior chest wall, too. In spite of the huge mass in the frontal fossa the case developed only dull headache without any neurological deficits. The frontal mass was successfully excised, of which pathological finding showed malignant melanoma.
