Primary malignant melanoma of the oronasal region is rare. When it does occur, it is difficult to manage, and the prognosis is not good. Early diagnosis and radical surgical management appear to offer the best hope of curing the disease. We report 3 new cases of malignant melanoma of the mucous membranes of the head and neck. Despite the generally poor outlook, 2 of these patients underwent excision of the tumor and remained disease-free 2 years later; the other patient refused surgery and was lost to follow-up.
