Abstract

Meningeal melanocytoma is a rare pigmented tumor originating from the melanocytes that generally occurs in the posterior fossa and the spinal cord. Although it is known as a relatively benign tumor, some recurrences have been reported. We report two cases of spinal meningeal melanocytoma with immunohistochemical and ultrastructural studies. In addition, we include a summary of published cases since the first case of Limas and Tio in 1972.
