ON ROUTINE examination, a 53-year-old man was found to have an iris
mass in the right eye. His visual acuity was 20/30 OD and 20/25 OS. The findings
were limited to the anterior segment of the right eye. Dilated episcleral
sentinel vessels were noted over an orange, inferiorly located ciliary body
mass, which measured 10 × 10 × 4 mm and caused lens subluxation
and focal cataract (Figure 1). Gonioscopically,
the mass abruptly displaced the overlying iris stroma (Figure 2). Transillumination demonstrated enhanced transmission
of light within the mass. Ultrasound biomicroscopy revealed an echodense iridociliary
mass with few cystic areas (Figure 3).
