• Three pigmented iris tumors were studied with fluorescein angiography. Two malignant melanomas leaked dye very early in the arterial phase, while blockage of fluorescence was noted in one melanocytoma. The angiographic appearance of these three lesions was consistent with that, which would be anticipated, based on knowledge of similar lesions in the fundus of the eye. We recommend that fluorescein angiography be performed for all pigmented iris tumors as part of the diagnostic evaluation.
