Malignant melanoma can involve any organ of the body and commonly involves the gastrointestinal tract. The first case of melanoma in the world's literature involving the cystic duct and the first in the English literature involving the common bile duct is described. This case is compared with the two cases in the world's literature with common duct involvement.
