Abstract

Vitiligo frequently develops in patients with cutaneous melanomas, especially those who have survived with metastases for prolonged periods. To our knowledge, only one patient with an ocular melanoma in whom vitiligo developed has been described. We have observed a second patient in whom vitiligo developed six to eight years after he had undergone an enucleation for ocular melanoma. Multiple halo nevi developed in a third patient who had an ocular melanoma. The association of vitiligo and ocular melanomas in these patients may not be the result of chance alone. (Arch Dermatol 1982;118:34-36).
