Malignant melanoma of the larynx is a rare cancer that can appear as a primary tumor or as a metastasis from a cutaneous head and neck primary site. It is known for its poor outcomes and survival. Owing to rarity of the disease every reported case of primary malignant melanoma of the larynx is important for understanding the natural course of disease, presentation, tumor biology, treatment, and prognosis for establishing guidelines for further management of the disease. Here we report a case of primary malignant melanoma of the larynx. Diagnosis was based on histological, immunohistochemical findings from excisional biopsy specimen from the larynx.
