Abstract.

The melanoma malignum metastases in the gastrointestinal tract are often asymptomatic. The diagnostics in their more frequent intestinal localization is mainly a priority of the imaging radiological methods, which give the opportunity for selective surgical interventions, aimed at increasing the life expectancy of the patients. The duodenal localization of the melanoma metastasis is even rarer, but also gives the possibility for additional endoscopic diagnostics and biopsy. Nevertheless, the possibilities for surgical resection at that topic are very restricted.

Key words: MELANOMA MALIGNUM. METASTASES. GI TRACT
