GH is a 47-year-old woman who was seen by an ophthalmologist for a routine eye examination. She was found to have an elevated pigmented lesion in her temporal fundus on ophthalmoscopy. A fluorescein angiogram was obtained that showed early hyperfluorescence in the late arterial phase with increasing hyperfluorescence in the late venous phase that persisted after 15 min.
