  Malignant melanoma is comparatively a rare malignancy whose prevalence is nearly 1 - 2% of whole-body malignancies. Out of these, 90% are skin malignancies. Melanomas are malignant neoplasms, they are derived from melanocytes, a neuroectodermal derivatives located in the basal layer of the skin. Malignant melanomas in the head and neck mucosal surfaces are quite rare, which account for < 1% of all melanomas. Malignant melanoma of sinonasal region accounts for 1% of all mucosal melanomas and 3 - 4% of malignant neoplasms of the sinonasal tract. They originate from melanocytes present in mucous membranes, in glands, superficial and deep stroma of septum and turbinates, bones like maxilla and ethmoids. Due to late presentation at an advanced stage, these have a significantly low 5-year survival.
