Primary malignant melanomas of the female urethra are rare tumors with poor prognosis. A 71-year-old woman who presented with hematuria and voiding dysfunction was biopsied from detected urethral mass. No other localized lesions were detected. The case was diagnosed as a primary malignant melanoma of urethra according to histopathologic and immunohistochemical findings. Immunohistochemical staining showed that the tumor cells were immunoreactive for vimetin, HMB-45, S-100, Melan-A. The aim of this case report is to present radiological findings of very rare primary urethral malign melanoma with histopathologic correlation and to review literature.
