Abstract

Three patients in three successive generations from the same family had choroidal malignant melanoma. The third generation patient had multiple primary malignancies; his siblings also had multiple malignancies. Chromosome studies of the third generation patient revealed no abnormality. To the best of our knowledge, this is the second such pedigree reported.
