Abstract

Although ophthalmologists are generally familiar with the typical clinical features of posterior uveal melanoma, a specific approach is helpful in establishing the diagnosis. This chapter covers the application of these methods specifically to ciliary body and choroidal melanoma. The material is condensed from two recent textbooks on the subject of intraocular tumors, which cite numerous references on the subject (Shields and Shields 1991,1999).
