A small series of melanomas of the external ear is presented. The presentation in general was late and they varied from 2.6 mm to 4.8 mm in thickness. The outcome in most of the patients (9 patients) was bad and within 3 years only 4 survived. The fact that 9 patients remembered having a nevus that suddenly changed to melanoma emphasizes the need for early removal of such nevi.
