To the Editor It was with great interest that we read the article by Suesskind et al titled “Retrospective Evaluation of Patients With Uveal Melanoma Treated by Stereotactic Radiosurgery With and Without Tumor Resection.”1 The authors describe their institutional experience of treating uveal melanoma with linear accelerator–based single-dose stereotactic radiotherapy (SDRT). There is suggestion in the article that theirs is the first report of using SDRT for the treatment of uveal melanoma.
