A Pigmented Tumor of the Ciliary Body

Abstract

Abstract A 34-year-old woman had a pigmented tumor of the ciliary body which had begun to invade the angle structures. Fluorescein angiography of the iris correctly suggested the benign nature of the lesion. The tumor was locally excised with the retention of good visual function. References 1.
