Melanoma of the Ciliary Body of the Young Subject: A Case Report


Melanoma of the Ciliary Body of the Young Subject: A Case Report
Uveal melanomas are the most common primary intraocular. We report a case of melanoma of the ciliary body from the left eye of a 21 y old patient. Ophthalmological examination of the left eye revealed the presence of a poorly pigmented tumor that presses back the lower temporal equatorial lens. The bottom of the eye is uninterpretable. The ultrasound measurements of the tumor were 3.5 mm thick over 10 mm in diameter. The diagnosis of ciliary body melanoma was posed. However, the patient has atypical karyotypic abnormalities that might suggest an ocular metastasis of another unknown primitive tumor.
