Malignant Melanoma of the Orbit in a Black Patient With Ocular Melanocytosis

Malignant Melanoma of the Orbit in a Black Patient With Ocular Melanocytosis Abstract • Ocular melanocytosis has been associated with an increased incidence of choroidal melanomas in white patients. Recently reported was a case of a choroidal melanoma in a black patient with oculodermal melanocytosis. We treated a case of an orbital malignant melanoma arising in a black patient with ocular melanocytosis. References 1.

Abstract

Abstract • Ocular melanocytosis has been associated with an increased incidence of choroidal melanomas in white patients. Recently reported was a case of a choroidal melanoma in a black patient with oculodermal melanocytosis. We treated a case of an orbital malignant melanoma arising in a black patient with ocular melanocytosis. References 1.
