The goal of this e-book is to explain the quick advances and to provide directions for medical professionals facing rectal melanoma. making an allowance for symptoms, contraindications, hazards, merits and controversies, the authors supply transparent and practice-oriented solutions for a variety of experts and specialists, in addition to these new to the sphere.

On the left lateral margin two valves may be present (Houston’s valves). The lower valve represents the superior limit of the lower rectum while the superior limit of the mid-rectum is Kohlrausch valve (Fig. 1). The anal canal is 3–4 cm long and is located between the rectum superiorly and the perianal skin inferiorly . Its superior limit is defined by the inter- nal anal sphincter and by the ano-rectal angle, delimited by the levator ani muscle, while for anatomists the ano-rectal junction corresponds to the pectinate line following the level of the anal valves .
These data may be used for the indication for preventive diverting colostomy, when the features of the tumour, after complete staging, suggest pre-operative neoadjuvant treatment. Similarly important in the planning of surgery is the assessment of the distance from the anal sphincter. For uniform criteria of assessment and for useful information for the surgeon who must decide on the type of surgery, we believe that the most important parameter is the distance between the inferior margin of the tumour and the internal anal orifice.
It should be noted that because of the normal lack of adipose planes between the levator ani, the most caudal portion of the rectum and the anal sphincter, in this site the assessment of the extramural infiltration is frequently impossible . Direct infiltration of adjacent bone structures (the sacrum and coccyx) can be diagnosed based on the finding of neoplastic tissue adjacent to gross areas of bone destruction. In other cases, the finding is not so clear and only the use of suitable windows for the study of the bone can evidence a minimum infiltration with areas of osteolysis limited to the cortex .
