Anorectal melanoma. A case report and brief review of the literature.
Anorectal melanoma in an uncommon tumor that has a poor prognosis. We present a case of anorectal melanoma and review the literature pertaining to prognosis and treatment. Although no controlled trials of treatment of anorectal melanoma have been done, the evidence suggests that conservative excision confers comparable survival with less morbidity than radical surgery.
