Primary extracutaneous melanoma is an exceedingly rare occurrence, and primary extracutaneous melanomas arising in tissues thought to be devoid of melanocytes are even rarer. The paper that follows describes two such cases, one case of primary gastric melanoma and one case of primary melanoma of the lung. Both cases were treated solely with surgical excision of the lesion, and the patients have experience no recurrent disease. Novel approaches to treat extracutaneous melanomas are also discussed.
