Anorectal malignant melanoma is a very rare but aggressive cancer which carries poor prognosis. Surgical intervention is the main management but whether wide local excision or abdominoperineal resection has better survival benefit remains controversial. However, robotic-assisted restorative proctectomy with coloanal anastomosis with intersphincteric resection (ISR) has not been reported yet. Hence, we presented a case with anorectal malignant melanoma treated with robotic-assisted ISR with coloanal anastomosis. The patient has satisfied post-operative life quality, and no local recurrence was noted after 3-year follow-up.
