Three cases of mucosal malignant melanoma of the nose and paranasal sinuses

We evaluated the clinical course and treatment of
three patients who were found to have mucosal
malignant melanoma of the nose and paranasal
sinuses. The presenting complaint was recurrent
epistaxis in all the patients. One patient had been
followed-up for nasal polyposis for a long time. In
older patients with recurrent epistaxis, endoscopic
examination of the nasal cavity and obtaining a biopsy
from suspected regions are essential for early
diagnosis of mucosal malignant melanomas.
