Melanoma is an aggressive tumour with an increasing incidence. Metastatic melanoma of the bladder is a very rare finding. We report the case of a 78-year-old man who presented with visible hematuria. Cystoscopy revealed bladder lesions that were endoscopically resected and diagnosed as melanoma of the bladder. Past history showed previous skin melanoma eleven years earlier and later recurrence in the left tight in 2016. We will discuss the epidemiology and treatment options of malignant metastatic melanoma based on a review of the literature.
