Abstract

We present the case of a 22-year-old woman who underwent surgical excision of a malignant melanoma of the skin three years previously and whom we saw for a pigmented tumor of the iridocorneal angle of her right eye associated with end-stage secondary glaucoma. After the clinical diagnosis of ring melanoma, she underwent enucleation of the eye. The pathologic examination showed a lesion predominantly appearing as a nevus with areas of borderline melanoma formation. The main features of this case were the young age of the patient, the predominant nevoid appearance of this diffuse ciliary body tumor with ring configuration, and the fact that it is a second primary melanoma in such a young patient.
