Summary

Primary malignant rectal melanoma is an extremely rare disease manifested by rectal bleeding. The diagnosis is established by endoscopy and confirmed by histology. Unfortunately, the disease is often diagnosed in the advanced stage. Treatment is mainly surgical. However, the intervention scope is still under discussion. Given the low occurrence of cases, optimal management of this disease is ambiguous. In this paper we describe the case of a 55-year-old woman with a malignant rectal melanoma and also present the literature review of these issues.
