Ophthalmology. 1982 Feb;89(2):178-82.

Scleral melanocytoma.

Abstract

An 81-year-old black woman with severe rheumatoid arthritis presented with an enlarging black lesion on the medial sclera of the left eye. Scleromalacia perforans was suspected. At surgical exploration, a deeply pigmented tumor was encountered, with extension into the orbit, along the medial rectus muscle. Biopsy revealed a benign melanocytoma.
