We report a 60 year-old-man who presented with generalized abdominal colicky pain. He had a history of left great toe dysarticulation done for amelanotic melanoma one year ago. Investigations were suggestive of metastases of melanoma to the small intestine. Exploratory laparotomy with segmental ileal resection and anastomosis was performed. Histological examination showed features of amelanotic melanoma characterized by absence of melanin pigment.
