Primary melanotic tumors of the nervous system: case descriptions

Takeaway

  • Patients with primary melanotic tumors of the nervous system (PMTNS) generally have a good prognosis.

Why this matters

  • PMTNS are exceedingly rare; as such clinical experience is scarce, and there is little guidance as to diagnostic criteria, or a defined standard of care.

  • Accurate descriptions of PMTNS will contribute to awareness of the disease and potential treatments among neurologists.
