Primary spinal intramedullary malignant melanoma involving the medulla oblongata.
Primary spinal malignant melanoma of the central nervous system is rare, and the events involving the spinal cord are even more infrequent. Spinal malignant (CNS) melanoma accounts for only 1% of all melanomas.The precise incidence, treatment, and prognosis are still unclear.
Symptoms include numbness, weakness, pain, difficulty using hands and walking imbalance.
These conditions should be investigated and treated early before the tumour grows and causes damage to the spinal cord and nerves.
