Abstract

Uveal melanomas are the most common primary intraocular tumors in adults and account for total of 79–81% of all the ocular melanomas. They can be divided as anterior tumors (iris) and posterior tumors (ciliary body and choroid). The most common neoplasm is observed in the choroid accounting for 80% of all uveal melanomas followed by ciliary body (10%) and iris (10%). Uveal melanomas account for 75% malignanacy of the intraocular tumors. The incidence in 6 per 100,000, about 0.003% of all cancers. The mean reported age of diagnosed uveal melanoma is 43.7 years in Chinese, 51.6 years in American blacks, 55.2 years in Japanese, and 52.4 years in the Hispanic population [1–7].
