Melanocytomas are very rare benign melanocytic tumors of the central nervous system (CNS). We present a case of a cervical melanocytoma diagnosed after trauma as a result of persistent neck pain and abnormal neurological examination. Early recognition of benign melanocytic lesions of the CNS is important, as a complete resection can often lead to cure with no need for further treatment.
