Abstract

Malignant melanoma most commonly arises in the skin; however, primary melanomas can also arise from the mucosal epithelial lining of the gastrointestinal tract. Primary esophageal melanoma is rare and constitutes only 0.1% of primary esophageal tumors. There are only a few reports on the use of endosonography in this condition. We report here a case of a 45-year-old male with a history of painful deglutition and describe the endosonographic features of primary esophageal melanoma.
