A 58-year-old Negro had a case of malignant melanoma of the limbus. No evidence of tumor was seen past the surgical margins of the lamellar scleral resectons. No local recurrence was noted six months after the surgical exicision. The possibility of central nervous system metastasis exists but could not be proven.
