Primary intracranial malignant melanoma
Internal Medicine; Surgery; Neurosurgery
Primary intracranial malignant melanoma (PIMM) are rare brain tumours; more infrequent than melanomas metastasizing to the brain or those extending to the brain from adjacent structures such as the orbit. Complete surgical excision with adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation remains the mainstay of treatment. Herein, we have reviewed the literature to find the treatment modalities for PIMMs that can lead to longer overall survivals and better patient outcomes.
