dc.description.abstractColonic tumours are most frequently primary and lesions secondary to metastasis are uncommon. Malignant melanoma is an aggressive cancer, with a tendency to metastasize and recur. This report describes the case of a 66-year-old man who underwent wide local excision and adjuvant therapy for malignant melanoma three years prior to presentation with loose stools, abdominal cramps and iron deficiency anaemia. CT colonography showed a 6cm ileocaecal mass, and following a laparoscopic right hemicolectomy, histological examination revealed a metastatic melanoma to the ileocaecal valve. Subsequent positron emission tomography showed no residual metastatic disease. Malignant melanoma metastasis to the colon is a rare clinical entity. Metastectomy via laparoscopic right hemicolectomy is an appropriate and effective treatment.
