This patient was noted to have a pigmented tumor on his right iris.
The digital images below will show a rounded pigmented tumor extending from the anterior chamber angle. Gonioscopy revealed no evidence of pigment dusting around the tumor or tumor in the adjacent ciliary body. It was also significant that there was no evidence of distortion of the iris stroma, ectropion uveae, sector cataract or abnormal vascularity (as might be seen with iris melanoma).
