  • Primary genitourinary melanoma accounts for less than 1% of all cases of melanoma. Melanoma of prostatic origin is extremely rare. These patients are difficult to diagnose and carry a very poor prognosis. Aggressive surgical resection is the current treatment standard. We report a case of primary malignant melanoma of the prostate found during transurethral resection of the prostate.
