Establishing the correct diagnosis of a growing choroidal tumor can be difficult.Methods:
Clinical examination and ultrasound of a patient followed for what was thought to be a uveal melanoma. Fine-needle biopsy established the correct diagnosis.Results:
We demonstrate that fine-needle biopsy can correctly identify a very rare tumor, a myomelanocytic neoplasm.Conclusion:
Myomelanocytic choroidal tumors can be diagnosed on fine-needle biopsy.
