Abstract

Malignant melanomas arising in the mucous membranes of the maxillofacial region are often highly invasive, causing bone destruction. Surgery and/or radiotherapy were found to be unsatisfactory treatment for this condition (Castermans et al. 1974; Lejeune et al. 1972) which has a very poor prognosis.
