Choroidal melanoma is a rare occurrence in pigmented races. Low clinical suspicion of choroidal melanoma may result in diagnostic delay. We present a rare case of choroidal melanoma with extrascleral orbital extension in an Australian Aboriginal man. We are unaware of previous reports of uveal melanoma in Aboriginal Australians and could find no reference to it in a computerized search utilizing Medline.
