Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of primary malignant melanoma of the vulva associated with pregnancy in a 31-year-old patient is reported. The primary tumor was first found at week 14 of pregnancy and biopsied on delivery at week 41 of pregnancy. Microscopically, the depth of invasion was Level V. Radical vulvectomy and bilateral inguino-femoral lymphadenectomy were performed and the right inguinal lymph node was positive for metastatic tumor. Chemoimmunotherapy with DTIC, ACNU, VCR and OK432 was undertaken as treatment for this malignant melanoma. Moreover, a comparison of scanning and transmission electron microscopic studies of the original tumor was carried out. This patient is now living 23 months after diagnosis without clinical evidence of recurrence.
