PMID:  2069894     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of malignant melanoma associated with vitiligo in a middle aged Nigerian is presented. The Association has been well documented in some other parts of the world, but this is the first of its type in the West African subregion. The occurrence of vitiligo in melanoma patients is generally believed to be beneficial, and has been well recognised to presage long time survival for the patient. The course of events in our patient is still being observed.
