Intussusceptions of the small bowel, along with multiple intraluminal metastatic tumors, were noted during surgery. A segmental resection of the small bowel was performed, and the histologic diagnosis of metastatic melanoma was made. Long-term survival remains poor; therefore, complete surgical resection of macroscopic tumors remains the best treatment of choice.
