A study of the uveas of white patients with known cutaneous melanoma and white control subjects showed that patients with cutaneous melanoma had a significantly higher frequency of iris nevi (101 of 197 patients, 51%) than control subjects (58 of 147 subjects, 39%). The frequency of choroidal nevi was also higher in the group with cutaneous melanoma but the number (eight of 197 patients compared with two of 147 control subjects) involved was too small for statistical significance to be assessed. Patients with cutaneous melanoma, particularly women, had more skin nevi than did control subjects.
