A 74-year-old man had previously been treated for primary malignant melanoma of the bladder. Three years after surgery, 8 mm round nodule in the right lower lobe was found on chest computed tomography. The nodule increased to 11 mm after three months, and resected with a diagnosis of metastatic malignant melanoma. By pathology, it was diagnosed as an intrapulmonary hematoma.
