Summary of "Nevus of Ota associated with a primary uveal melanoma and intracranial melanoma metastasis."

Nevus of Ota is a blue, hyperpigmented, benign dermatosis of the skin and mucosae that most often occurs unilaterally in the distribution of the ophthalmic (V1) and maxillary (V2) branches of the trigeminal nerve. Although uncommon, association with malignant melanoma is a complication that must be considered in the evaluation of patients with nevus of Ota. Mutations in the and genes in patients with nevus of Ota place them at higher risk for malignant melanoma and metastasis. We report the case of a 29-year-old woman with a long-standing history of nevus of Ota who presented acutely with an intracranial melanoma as an extension of a primary uveal melanoma.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An unpigmented malignant melanoma. It is an anaplastic melanoma consisting of cells derived from melanoblasts but not forming melanin. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)

Clinically atypical nevi (usually exceeding 5 mm in diameter and having variable pigmentation and ill defined borders) with an increased risk for development of non-familial cutaneous malignant melanoma. Biopsies show melanocytic dysplasia. Nevi are clinically and histologically identical to the precursor lesions for melanoma in the B-K mole syndrome. (Stedman, 25th ed)

Experimentally induced tumor that produces MELANIN in animals to provide a model for studying human MELANOMA.

A cellular subtype of malignant melanoma. It is a pigmented lesion composed of melanocytes occurring on sun-exposed skin, usually the face and neck. The melanocytes are commonly multinucleated with a "starburst" appearance. It is considered by many to be the in situ phase of lentigo maligna melanoma.

Found in large amounts in the plasma and urine of patients with malignant melanoma. It is therefore used in the diagnosis of melanoma and for the detection of postoperative metastases. Cysteinyldopa is believed to be formed by the rapid enzymatic hydrolysis of 5-S-glutathionedopa found in melanin-producing cells.
