A 6-year-old castrated male boxer dog with right-sided dark purulent nasal discharge and acute bilateral blindness was diagnosed on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and then on necropsy with primary nasal malignant melanoma that extended into the brain, as well as concurrent ocular melanosis. There was no evidence of metastasis in other organs.
