[en] Malignant melanoma developed after 60 years of age is not a rare neoplasm. It is mainly but not exclusively represented by the lentigo maligna (LM) and the invasive melanoma developed on LM (LMM). Men are more often affected, and chronic sun exposure is the main cause. The diagnosis relies on the clinical, dermoscopic and dermatopathologic examinations. Surgical excision is recommended but alternative treatments are possible in case of contra-indication.
