Melanoma has a high propensity for cardiac seeding, with heart involvement noted in a significant number of patients at autopsy. Therapeutic options are currently limited, and the prognosis of cardiac metastasis is poor. We report two cases of cardiac metastasis of melanoma and review the current literature. In addition, we propose an algorithm for dealing with this difficult problem.
