Skin melanoma can metastasize to any organ or tissue. The median survival in patient with intestinal metastases is inferior to 7 months compared to other sites metastasis. A wide intestinal resection including the resection of the mesentery with lymph nodes remains the main treatment due to the low morbidity and mortality rate it is also associated with.
