Abstract

 

Primary malignant melanomas of the female urethra are rare tumors with poor prognosis. Biopsy of the detected urethral mass was performed in a 71-year-old woman who presented with hematuria and voiding dysfunction. No other localized lesions were detected. The patient was diagnosed with primary malignant melanoma of the urethra according to the histopathologic and immunohistochemical findings. Immunohistochemical staining revealed that the tumor cells were immunoreactive for vimentin, HMB-45, S-100, and Melan-A. The present study aimed to present radiological findings of very rare primary urethral malign melanoma with histopathologic correlation and to review the relevant literature.
