Abstract

A 25-year-old white woman underwent iridocyclectomy for an iris tumor. Clinically, histologically, and ultrastructurally this tumor was the same as a recently reported tapioca melanoma of the iris. During the next four months, there were recurrent growths on the ciliary body that we treated with the argon laser through a three-mirror lens. No further recurrences of the tumor were noted three years later.
