Malignant melanoma of the female genital tract is rare and has a poor prognosis. The aim of surgical treatment for these cancers is maximal removal to optimize survival. However, pelvic excision can be severely disruptive to quality of life and postoperatively patient prognoses are far from good. A better prognosis has been associated with tumors that are removed when they are smaller than 3 cm. The application of minimally invasive techniques has reduced the negative impacts of excision operations. A treatment plan consisting of laparoscopic vaginectomy together with molecularly targeted drug therapy may improve vaginal malignant melanoma outcomes.
