The association between dermatomyositis and malignancy has been a controversial issue discussed in the literature. We will describe a rare case of a 34-year-old woman with a 6-year history of malignant melanoma and new onset dermatomyositis. To the best of our knowledge only 8 such cases have been previously reported in the literature.
