OBJECTIVE To describe histopathologic features of anterior optic nerves of 12 eyes enucleated for sustained high ocular pressure from iris-ciliary body melanomas in 10 and choroidal melanomas with chronic angle closure in 2. METHODS In this retrospective study, we analyzed cases indexed in 2 eye pathology laboratories and reviewed the pertinent(More)
PURPOSE Hereditary hyperferritinemia cataract syndrome (HHCS) is a genetic disease defined by cataracts, hyperferritinemia, and ferritin light-chain (L-ferritin) gene mutations. HHCS was diagnosed in this study in one of the first families known to be affected in the United States, and the basis of lens opacities in HHCS was determined. METHODS DNA(More)
Intraocular medulloepithelioma (IO MEPL) is an uncommon embryonal neuroepithelial neoplasm of the eye. These ocular neoplasms have been compared with intracranial medulloepitheliomas or other histologic variants of CNS embryonal tumor with multilayered rosettes (CNS ETMR) due to their morphological mimicry. We performed comprehensive molecular analysis to(More)
Purpose Intraocular medulloepithelioma (IM), the second most common primary neuroepithelial tumor of the eye, can lead to blindness in the affected eye and in rare cases, is deadly. Intraocular medulloepithelioma lacks targetable biomarkers for potential pharmacologic therapy. The purpose of this study was to identify actionable, tumor-specific proteins for(More)
Purpose. To present the clinical and histopathologic correlation of two cases of epithelial downgrowth (EDG) after prior intraocular surgery. Methods. Observational case reports. Results. We present two cases of EDG occurring after intraocular surgery. In both cases, after two anterior chamber injections of 5-fluorouracil (5FU), the area of EDG initially(More)
Leiomyoma is a rare intraocular tumor that arises from uveal smooth muscle. Herein, we report a large leiomyoma that occupied nearly 50% of the globe, closely resembling melanoma. A 40-year-old female presented with a 17 × 15 × 11 mm amelanotic ciliochoroidal mass causing visual defect in her right eye (OD). Based on transillumination features of tumor(More)
A 68-year-old man presented with redness of left eye since six months. Examination revealed bilateral corneal furrow degeneration. Left eye lesion was suggestive of conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma, encroaching on to cornea. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) confirmed peripheral corneal thinning. Fluorescein angiography confirmed(More)
BACKGROUND Intraocular medulloepithelioma arises from the primitive medullary epithelium and is diagnosed at a median age of five years. This tumor most commonly appears as a white, gray, or yellow-colored ciliary body tumor. The growth of medulloepithelioma is slow and it is locally invasive. Poor vision and pain are the most common presenting symptoms.(More)
