Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 25-year-old man suffered from a sudden severe headache followed by loss of consciousness on 29 March 1993. Cranial computed tomography was performed at a local hospital and arteriovenous malformation was suspected. An open biopsy was performed on 7 July 1993 and malignant melanoma was discovered. Radiotherapy was given in August 1993. The patient's condition continued to deteriorate and he died of bronchopneumonia about 7 months after the initial diagnosis. Autopsy confirmed primary leptomeningeal melanoma.
