Among these, the primary tumours typically associated with metastasis to the breast are cutaneous melanomas. We present, herein, a case of solitary metastasis to the right breast from malignant melanoma of the left thumb. This case report aims to increase awareness of the need to establish treatment strategies based on an understanding of the etiology and patho physiology of malignant melanomas.
