A case is reported in which an eye of a patient was found to contain a malignant melanoma of the peripheral choroid and ciliary body in association with a serous retinal detachment and hole. The hole and detachment were not directly over the tumor. The importance of clinically recognizing this possible combination of findings is stressed.
