Primary melanocytic tumors of the central nervous system are rare. In this article the authors describe a case of C1C2 intradural extramedullary melanocytoma in a 43-year-old patient who presented with neck pain. C1-3 laminectomy was performed followed by excision of the lesion and an adjoining satellite nodule, along with the dural attachment. The histopathological features were consistent with a meningeal melanocytoma despite the presence of a satellite nodule. The patient has no evidence of recurrence during the six month follow up period. A brief review of literature pertaining to the radiological features, pathological findings, management and prognosis of this rare tumor is discussed.
