Abstract

Cutaneous metastases are common sequelae of primary malignant melanoma. Because patients with melanoma are examined frequently after diagnosis, it is important that dermatologists are aware of the range of findings that may represent metastatic disease. Many case reports and a few retrospective series have been published detailing the wide variety of clinical presentations of cutaneous metastatic melanoma. This article reviews the various manifestations of metastatic melanoma of the skin and oral mucous membranes and summarizes treatment options for metastatic disease.
