Synchronous Urinary Bladder and Gluteal Muscle Metastases of Malignant Melanoma: A Case Report and Review of the Literature. Volume II, Issue 1, July 2022, 63-69. DOI:https://doi.org/10.53011/JMRO.2022.01.08
Malignant melanoma has been known to metastasize; several cases in the literature have reported its metastasis to the urinary bladder. Metastasis to the gluteal muscle, however, is quite unusual. We report a case of malignant melanoma metastatic lesions in the urinary bladder and gluteal muscle, with a very good response to targeted therapy despite the aggressive behavior of this disease.
