With the exception of melanocytomas, ciliary body nevi are rare. Previous case series have reported episcleral nodular extension of ciliary body nevi leading to their diagnosis1 or alternatively ciliary body nevi with involvement of the iris root, resulting in their detection using slitlamp biomicroscopy.2 Herein, we report a pigmented limbal nodule consistent with a ciliary body nevus diagnosed post mortem in a donor eye as an incidental finding during corneoscleral disc preparation for transplantation.
