However, cases of secondary metastatic deposits in the breast, without any known primary malignancy history, have only rarely been documented in the literature. Melanoma of the breast is a sparse existence, presenting as either primary or metastatic from other solid neoplasms. Extra-mammary origin of malignant melanoma and the breast as the focus of secondary metastatic deposits; with the chief presenting complaint of a breast lump is a novel diagnostic trivia. A case of a premenopausal female with metastatic melanoma in her breast is being reported here.

Key words: Malignant Melanoma , Breast Carcinoma , Mammary Neoplasm , Metastatic Deposit.
