Abstract:

The malignant melanoma of the nail is relatively rare and the regional metastatic tumors appear even with less frequency. The paper relates the case of an old patient female, 67-year-old diagnosed with malignant melanoma of the left index nail in 1994. No secondary tumour has been diagnosed at that moment and transmetacarpal amputation of the second finger has been done.

The patient followed a complete therapy with interferon and was re-examined each month, three six and then twelve month. In 1996 the first secondary melanoma developed on a superficial dorsal vein situated over the deep fascia that covered the remnant second metacarpian and was excised.

Some other metastatic tumours developed during the following period, all of them being situated on the same cephalic vein, first in the forearm and than in the arm. The lymphnods were not invaded. The decision of the excision of the remnant cephalic vein has been taken in 1999.

The histological examination confirmed the presence of tumoral cells. In 2000 axillary adenopathy has been detected so an excision of the left axillary lymphnods has been performed, together with skin which seemed to be pigmented. The histological exam revealed lymphnods invasion and cutaneous metastatic cells.
