Isolated pancreatic metastases from melanoma are rare with high mortality rate and account for less than 1% of metastatic melanomas. Treatment options are limited with highest overall survival reported in those with complete surgical resection. Of cases reported in the literature with nonsurgical management, highest length of survival was reported to be 10 months. We report a case of malignant melanoma with isolated pancreatic metastasis treated with interferon therapy and immunotherapy, with evidence of progressive tumor shrinkage and survival at 38 months.
