Abstract [en]

Vulvovaginal melanomas are rare tumors that account for a small fraction of all vulvovaginal cancers. Biologically, they seem to be similar to mucosal and acral melanomas of other sites. There are limited data specific to vulvovaginal melanomas, especially regarding systemic therapies. Most treatment decisions are based on extrapolation from data regarding cutaneous melanomas of other sites. It is reasonable to follow already established guidelines from other professional groups and societies. Outcomes tend to be worse compared with cutaneous melanomas likely because of the later presentation and physical biological characteristics of these tumors.
