Internet search for vulva melanoma revealed typical examples from several countries. The descriptions revealed the parameters such as the presentation at late stage among post-menopausal women with associated lichen sclerosus as well as the Caucasians having a 3-fold higher incidence rate than the individuals of African descent. Therefore, a single case found in a Nigerian among a cohort of over 100 pedal melanomas is deemed worthy of documentation.
