Metastatic Rhabdoid Melanoma of Parotid Gland: Remarkable Response to Paclitaxel/Carboplatin Combination

Abstract

 Metastatic Rhabdoid Melanoma of Parotid Gland: Remarkable Response to Paclitaxel/Carboplatin Combination

Melanoma with rhabdoid features is an uncommon variant of malignant melanoma. We report the first case of melanoma with rhabdoid features arising from parotid gland. A 67-year-old, white male presented with a solid, mildly tender, nodular mass in the right parotid gland, with extension posterior to the auricle with ipsilateral complete facial nerve palsy. A diagnosis of rhabdoid melanoma was made based on clinical, radiological and biopsy findings. The patient underwent a radical parotidectomy with a radical neck dissection following by adjuvant radiotherapy.
