Abstract

Sarcoma of the iris is rare. A primary cyst of the iris is also rare, but to find these two conditions together is extremely rare. The following case demonstrates the occurrence of these two conditions in one eye.

REPORT OF A CASE

M. H., a woman, aged 36, was examined first on Feb. 14, 1929, and gave the following history: On Jan. 24, 1929, her husband noticed that the pupil of her right eye was pulled to one side. The eye became inflamed the first week in February. There were pains about the eye at times, and the eye was slightly red. The patient had worn glasses off and on since she was 12 years old, but not in the last three or four years. Vision in the right eye seemed slightly blurred. There were no headaches. Vision was 20/20 in both eyes.
