Uveal Melanoma in Asian Indians: A Clinicopathological Study

Arch Ophthalmol. 2002;120(4):522-523. doi:

Malignant melanoma of the uvea is considered rare among Asian Indians. There are only one small series1 and a few case-reports2-4 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.
