The common sites of metastasis are lymph nodes, lung, liver, brain, bone, heart, adrenal glands, and gastrointestinal tract in descending order (2). However multiple organ involvement is a common feature at the advanced stage. A 38-year-old male had developed pancreatic pseudocyst during the course of malignant melanoma at right sole. It was proven to be from matastatic malignant melanoma.
