Abstract:We describe a case of plantar interdigital cutaneous melanoma in a 22-year-old woman
who reported changes in a pigmented lesion during pregnancy. Diagnosis was late and
evolution unfavourable. The purpose of this report is to draw the attention of
dermatologists to the need for careful regular examination of melanocytic lesions in
pregnant women, not ignoring possible changes as always physiological.
