Two patients are described in whom black hypopyon and black keratic precipitates occurred as a result of intraocular melanoma. In one instance the hypopyon was due to a clinically unsuspected primary choroidal melanoma in an eye with opaque media; in the second case the tumor was metastatic to the uvea from a cutaneous melanoma. Histological examination showed the hypopyon to be composed of pigment-laden macrophages and neoplastic melanoma cells.
