We present a case of giant melanoma of the scalp observed in our department. It is a rare but very aggressive pathology which is generally treated by radical surgery. We emphasize early diagnosis because a large extension of the tumor can lead to the need of a very extensive surgical resection. Prognosis is very severe despite adjuvant medical treatments.
