ABSTRACT

Endobronchial metastasis occurs in about 2% to 5% of patients dying of solid tumors of extrathoracic origin. These metastatic tumors can simulate bronchogenic carcinoma and presenting symptoms include cough, hemoptysis, dyspnea and wheezing. In most cases of endobronchial metastasis, the histologic finding of the bronchoscope biopsy suggests the correct diagnosis. There are only a few reports of endobronchial metastasis from malignant melanoma. We report a case of malignant melanoma with endobronchial metastasis presenting with hemoptysis simulating primary bronchogenic carcinoma.

Mentions: In February, 1986 she had been diagnosed as stage I malignant melanoma of the left cervical region which was treated with wide excision and left radical neck dissection. The pathologic report revealed it to be Clark’s level IV and 5 mm in thickness (Fig. 1). Since then she had been followed regularly through the outpatient department without any evidence of recurrence.
