Over the last several decades, the incidence of malignant melanoma has been increasing rapidly. The annual incidence rates have increased approximately 3~7% in Caucasian population. The rate of increase is highest in perimenopausal period in women. The relationship between risk of melanoma and female hormone is still unclear. The safety of hormone therapy for the melanoma patients is not known. We experienced a case of melanoma in whom underwent hormone therapy for 10 years. We report this case with a brief review of literature.
