Abstract

Context: Several studies have demonstrated improved survival after complete resection of hollow viscus gastrointestinal metastases of malignant melanoma. Patients with metastatic disease of intra-abdominal solid organs might also benefit from complete surgical resection. Case report: The authors report the case of a 22-year-old female patient with multiorgan abdominal metastases of cutaneous malignant melanoma, including the ovarium, jejunum, stomach and pancreas. All metastases were resected successfully. Conclusion: In highly selected patients with melanoma metastatic to intra-abdominal solid organs and hollow viscus gastrointestinal organs, aggressive attempts and complete surgical resection may improve survival.
