Abstract: 

Oculodermal melanocytosis is a congenital melanoblastic hamartoma affecting ocular tissues and facial skin. Malignant degeneration once believed to be rare in this syndrome, occurs in 4.6% of all reported case, and is more frequent in whites. A review of the literature in this disease is discussed as well as a new case of orbital malignant melanoma associated with it. A 49-year-old woman with evidence of congenital oculodermal melanocytosis presented with a sub brow mass. After imaging, incisional biopsy was performed from the orbital mass, pigmented conjunctiva, pigmented periocular skin and palate mucosa. Histhopathologic studies documented primary orbital malignant melanoma.
