Benign and primary malignant breast tumors are rather common, but secondary tumors in the breast from extramammary malignancies are uncommon. Breast metastases from melanoma are rare but could reflect a widespread disease. We present a case of melanoma of the right lateral chest wall with metastasis to the right breast and subcutaneous tissue in a postmenopausal female. She was planned for palliative chemotherapy with cisplatin and dacarbazine. Interim imaging after three cycles of chemotherapy showed stable disease. The long-term prognosis of patients with breast metastasis from malignant melanoma is extremely unfavorable.
