Abstract

Anorectal malignant melanoma, a rare and aggressive tumor, lacks specific symptoms and frequently presents diagnostic challenges due to its similarity to benign anorectal conditions. This case report describes the diagnostic and treatment process of incidentally discovered anorectal malignant melanoma post-hemorrhoidectomy, guided by the existing literature.
