Multiple metastasis of malignant melanoma. The diagnostic role of ultrasonography starting from a parotid tumor.

Alexandru Florin Badea, Răzvan Orza, Andrada Seicean


We presented the case of a patient with a slowly developing right parotid tumor over the course of several years. Multimodal ultrasonography proved relevant for malignancy. Subsequent imaging identified tumors in numerous organs, considered metastases. Ultrasonography consolidated all identified aspects. Biopsy from an adrenal mass and histological examination evidenced the presence of a malignant, metastatic melanoma with cutaneous origin. Considerations are made regarding the role of ultrasonography in such cases.
