Malignant melanoma of the uvea is considered rare among Asian Indians.
There are only one small series1 and a few
on uveal melanoma from India; no large studies have been reported. From 1987-1999,
we retrospectively analyzed the clinical and histopathological characteristics
of uveal melanoma in Asian Indians registered in the ocular oncology department
of our tertiary care institute.
