Abstract

As few as 30 cases of primary malignant melanoma of the lung have been reported in the literature. Many patients die within months of diagnosis; few published cases describe patients who survive long-term after treatment. We report a case of primary pulmonary malignant melanoma in a patient who remains disease-free 60 months after pneumonectomy.
