Excerpt

The estimated rate of local recurrence in skin grafts at the site of primary melanoma is 1% to 8%.1 Melanoma metastases at skin graft donor sites are rare; even more so, metastases affecting both the recipient and the donor areas of grafts are described in just 5 cases,1 always after excision of local recurrences or in-transit metastases, or in the context of a disseminated disease at presentation.1 We report the first case of melanoma cutaneous metastases affecting exclusively skin graft donor and receiving sites.
