Abstract

Multiorgan Resection (Including the Pancreas) for Metastasis of Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma

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
