Malignant melanoma is a cutaneous neoplasia with very high mortality rates that is one of the most aggressively-disseminating malignancies. It has been estimated that between 10% to 40% of melanoma patients will experience metastases into the lung. Here, we present a case of a recurrence of melanoma at the chest wall port site, following a thoracoscopic procedure to remove a metastatic lesion on the right lower pulmonary lobe.
