Cutaneous melanomas, tumors of epidermal melanocytes are infrequent but highly lethal skin cancers. Initial stages of acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM) may be difficult to differentiate from the plantar wart, black heel and other benign nevus conditions. Even with available modern treatment options, the mortality is still on the rise, which in part is related to the delay in diagnosis. Here, we present a case of ALM, previously treated with excision and lymphadenectomy who presented with in-transit metastases (ITM).
