Melanoma, a common cutaneous malignant tumour arises from melanocytes. The incidence in Asia and Indian subcontinent is increasing over the years. Apart from variable morphologies under cytology and histopathology, clinical presentations are also diverse. Here we present a case of melanoma with late recurrence and metastasis following the amputation of primary tumour. We conclude that melanoma may mimic the presentation of gangrene and hence it is important to subject any excised specimen to pathologic examination.
