Rapidly growing gastric metastasis of Merkel cell carcinoma, an unusual cause of melena

abstract
Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is an uncommon, highly aggressive neuroendocrine skin carcinoma that has a tendency for local recurrence and metastatic disease. We report a rare case of recurrent melena in a 77-year-old Caucasian male. Three years earlier, the patient had undergone a radical resection of a para-umbilical MCC. A repeat esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) proved necessary to identify rapidly proliferating gastric metastasis of MCC as the cause of bleeding.
