Abstract

Purpose:

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.
