Primary melanoma of the central nervous system is a rare melanocytic tumor typically located in the leptomeninges. We report a 57-year-old woman with an intracranial leptomeningeal melanoma who presented with myoclonic seizures. Brain CT scan and MRI revealed a hemorrhagic intracranial tumor. The tumor was completely removed and leptomeningeal melanoma was proven pathologically. Follow-up imaging studies up to 19 months showed no recurrence of the disease. Here we present radiological, gross, and pathological images of leptomeningeal melanoma, discuss its characteristics, and review the relevant literature.
