Anorectal melanoma is a rare tumor of the anal canal. It is <1% of all anorectal malignancies and 1%–2% of melanoma. Because of the presentation and aggressive nature of the tumor, the prognosis remains poor. The patient often presents with nonspecific complaints such as bleeding per rectum or altered bowel habits. Because of the late presentation and aggressiveness, the selection of treatment modality is limited. This case series reviews the clinical features and management of patients with anorectal malignant melanoma.
