ABSTRACT

Introduction: cutaneous melanoma is a malignant tumor originated from melanocytes, whose incidence and mortality rates have increased in recent decades. It is the most common cause of death among skin diseases, and accounts for its 75%. Most of them originate in healthy skin on a nevus or other organs. It is a highly aggressive tumor with a tendency to lymphatic or hematogenous metastases. Nodular melanoma accounts for 15 to 35% of these tumors, affecting photo-protected areas of skin, with vertical growth phase, which determines their behavior as aggressive and its worse prognosis.
Case report: old patient with right foot tumor injury, asymptomatic, four years of evolution, with rapid growth in the last three months. Clinical and histopathological diagnosis is made, compatible with nodular melanoma. The treatment of choice is surgical removal.
Conclusions: nodular melanoma is a very aggressive tumor and survival depends on early diagnosis, allowing the cure of more than 90% of the cases.


Key words: Melanoma, Nevus.
