Malignant melanoma during pregnancy is a difficult problem as a variety of risks to both the mother and fetus must be weighed. We describe a rapidly progressive malignant melanoma diagnosed during pregnancy. There are no standarized guidelines for treatment; each case requires an individualized approach. We review the literature and present an algorithm to aid in approaching such patients.
