It looks like the plant itself is struggling, and it's the only stem compared to the ones to the left and right of it (unless you see other stems that were effected). There is some new growth at the top however that looks healthy. If it's a green coating then it sounds like algae and it's taking advantage of the poor state of the plant. You may want to remove that entire stem, trim off the healthy growth, and replant those bits. What's your substrate, and are you fertilizing at all? how long is your photo period?

Yes then by all means don't hesitate to trim it, in the long run it will grow healthier and faster than trying to salvage it. This is especially true with stem plants that are fast growers.
