• A 32-year-old white woman presented with an amelanotic choroidal tumor in the left eye. Although a malignant melanoma could not be totally ruled out, some features suggested a benign tumor. The patient was followed up without treatment during a 2-year period. Neovascular glaucoma developed and the blind eye was enucleated. Histopathologic examination revealed a benign fibrous tumor of the choroid, presumably a fibrous histiocytoma.
