Abstract

The authors report the case of a patient suffering from melanoma of the choroid above the optic disc. Given the good level of visual acuity and the location and extent of the damage, he was given a radiotherapy treatment with proton beams. At an interval of 6 months from this treatment, the neoformation appeared limited, and no vascular changes due to irradiation were observed.
