Abstract

Melanoma is commonly known to metastasize and can spread to any organ, however, gastric metastases from melanoma are rare. We present an unexpected case of a 66-year-old woman, with previous history of dorsal melanoma excision, presenting 5 years later with 2 subcutaneous melanoma metastases on the dorsum and 1 on the gastric body. During endoscopic evaluation, esophagogastric junction adenocarcinoma was also diagnosed and the patient underwent total gastrectomy with distal esophagectomy. There are few reported cases of metastatic melanoma of the stomach and, to our knowledge, none with concomitant adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction.
