Abstract

A metastatic malignant melanoma is a malignant tumor which can involve virtually every organ system. It has variable radiographic findings which mostly indicate solid masses in the mesentery. We report here on a case of a metastatic malignant melanoma, which is made up of multiple mesenteric cystic tumors that need to differentiate from the mesenteric cystic tumor. These include the cystic spindle cell tumor, cystic teratoma, cystic mesothelioma as well as the mesenteric cystic and the solid tumor, which in turn comprises the gastrointestinal stromal tumor, lymphoma and metastatic lesion. The metastatic malignant melanoma can offer a differential diagnosis when the image findings indicate multiple mesenteric cystic masses, multiple organic metastases, and subcutaneous nodules.
