Abstract

This is an example of iritic tumor, which, suspected of being sarcomatous, was removed when enucleation was refused. In its later course it involved the whole anterior portion of the globe and enucleation was finally permitted because of the pain. The dissemination of pigment in the anterior chamber should be regarded as indicative of malignant melanotic tumor and enucleation strongly advised. From the German University Eye Clinic, Prague, Prof. Dr. A. Elschnig, Director.
