Abstract

We presented an unusual case of cutaneous and bilateral ovarian metastases of malignant melanoma. There was no previously identifiable cutaneous or mucous lesion or teratoid element. Past history revealed that the patient had undergone removal of a blackish, elevated, irregular shaped tumor from the right arm eleven years previously. This lesion was considered to be the primary melanoma; therefore, it was thought to be very unusual as metastasis occurred in both the skin and ovaries after an eleven year disease-free interval.
