Primary melanoma of the vagina is a rare neoplasm that appears in the 6th and 7th decades of life. It has a poor prognosis, for which there is no consensus regarding treatment; indeed, the literature describes a number of therapeutic options. This paper describes a patient with vaginal melanoma treated by local excision and immunotherapy.
