Criteria for the Callender classification of uveal melanoma are subjective and lead to variations among observers of the same tumor. Two other measures for cell type-the number of epithelioid cells per high-power field (Epi/HPF) and the inverse SD of nucleolar area (ISDNA)-were evaluated as prognostic factors for survival following enucleation for uveal melanoma in 232 patients. Variables significantly related to the number of Epi/HPF were related to ISDNA. Larger, more anteriorly located… CONTINUE READING
