We present a case of 58-year old female patient that underwent surgery at Department of General and Vascular Surgery, Voivodeship Hospital of Traumatic Surgery in Warsaw for abdominal pain and nausea and palpable mass located in the left mesogastric region. During the surgical procedure, numerous, large nodules of the small intestine mesentery and the greater omentum were found. Histopathological examination demonstrated that they were melanoma metastases. When we confronted the reported case with available literature, we found only few similar reports.
