Abstract: Traumatic neuroma is a reactive non-neoplastic neural proliferation that results from trauma. Although such type of lesions found surgical scars due to different reasons, its involvement by residual or recurrent malignancies is rarely reported. In this article, we describe an unusual case of traumatic neuroma with perineural invasion by invasive melanoma.
