The left eye of an otherwise healthy child was enucleated at the age of 2 months because of an enlarging mass involving the temporal iris, ciliary body, and anterior retina. The initial histopathologic diagnosis was malignant medulloepithelioma with orbital extension. Closer study revealed a superotemporal chorioretinal and ciliary body coloboma; dysplasia of the adjacent retina; a glioneuromatous mass replacing the temporal ciliary body, chamber angle structures, and iris and extending through… 
New insights into the development of infantile intraocular medulloepithelioma.
TLDR
Discovery of these biomarkers in the neoplastic ciliary epithelium in a small number of tumors indicates preliminarily that the most anterior layers of the optic cup have a retained retinal and neuroglial differentiation potentiality.
Ocular glioneuroma with medulloepitheliomatous differentiation in a goldfish (Carassius auratus)
TLDR
An intraocular mass in the left eye causing chronic severe exophthalmia in an adult female goldfish (Carassius auratus) is described, which suggested a retinal origin.
Retinal glioneuronal hamartoma in neurofibromatosis type 1.
TLDR
The patient was born at term with buphthalmos and proptosis of her right eye, accompanied by corneal clouding and increased tearing, and subsequently noted to have right sphenoid wing dysplasia, multiple cutaneous plexiform neuromas of the right eyelids and face, right hemispheric dysplastic polymicrogyria, and a seizure disorder.
Intraocular Medulloepitheliomas and Embryonal Tumors With Multilayered Rosettes of the Brain: Comparative Roles of LIN28A and C19MC.
TLDR
Intraocular medulloepitheliomas and embryonal tumors with multilayered rosettes of the brain both display LIN28A positivity, but only the latter, however, display amplification of the 19q13.42 locus involving the C19MC cluster of miRNA.
Epibulbar Proliferative Fasciitis, a Variant of Nodular Fasciitis: A Differential Diagnosis of Conditions With Focal or Diffuse Myxoid Stromas
TLDR
A rapidly evolving conjunctival lesion is unlikely to be a primary or metastatic carcinoma and in the current case, the large ganglioform or rhabdomyoblast-like cells displayed diffuse cytokeratin positivity, still consistent with a mesenchymal or connective tissue cell lineage.
TUMORS OF THE NONPIGMENTED EPITHELIUM OF THE CILIARY BODY: The Lorenz E. Zimmerman Tribute Lecture
TLDR
Since Zimmerman's report on histopathologic features of tumors of the nonpigmented ciliary body epithelium, there have been numerous publications and further observations on the clinical features and management of these intriguing neoplasms.
Adult Ocular Toxocariasis Mimicking Ciliary Body Malignancy
TLDR
Ocular toxocariasis can mimic ocular malignancy such as medulloepithelioma in adults and rarely presents as an anterior scleral mass, which rarely can mimic uveitic syndromes.
Lacrimal Gland Choristoma of the Ciliary Body
TLDR
Lacrimal gland choristoma should be included in the differential diagnosis of a ciliary body mass in pediatric patients, based on the observed swelling and tenderness of the right upper eyelid in an infant.
Update of sporadic microphthalmos and coloboma. Non-inherited anomalies.
  • M. Warburg
  • Biology, Medicine
    Ophthalmic paediatrics and genetics
  • 1992
TLDR
This is a survey of non-inherited, sporadic microphthalmos, which may occur in the Goldenhar, CHARGE and VATER associations and may be due to teratological agents, for instance maternal ingestion of drugs, maternal infection, fever or irradiation.
Tumors of the Ciliary Epithelium
Tumors arising from the ciliary epithelium are quite uncommon. The extremely low prevalence of these tumors often causes them to be mistaken for other more common iridociliary tumors such as melanoma

Recurrent medulloepithelioma of the ciliary body. Immunohistochemical characteristics.
TLDR
The results suggest that even a nonteratoid medulloepithelioma may be, unlike retinoblastoma, a truly multipotential tumor.

In a four-year-old boy a malignant teratoid medulloepithelioma of the ciliary body was removed by means of an 11.0 X 11.0 mm "block excision". Two years later the patients visual acuity was 0.6. The
Neuroectodermal tumor of anterior lip of the optic cup. Glioneuroma transitional to teratoid medullo-epithelioma.
TLDR
A congenital neoplasm of the inner layer of the anterior lip of the optic cup is delineated and demonstrates features predominantly of a glioneuroma, but with transitions to a teratoid medullo-epithelioma.
Hamartomatous adenoma of the nonpigmented ciliary epithelium arising in iris-ciliary body coloboma. Light and electron microscopic observations.
TLDR
A 2 1/2-year-old boy had a slowly enlarging mass at the site of a typical iris-ciliary body coloboma for 2 years that represents a hamartomatous (congenital) adenoma of the nonpigmented ciliary epithelium rather than a conventional (acquired)adenoma, since it developed precisely within a colobomatously defect of the iris and ciliary body.

TLDR
The clinical diagnosis was retinoblastoma and the eye was removed and the tumor mainly consisted of neuroectodermal elements in several degrees of differentiation giving the aspect of a benign (hamartomatous) embryonal brain tumor rather than those of a retinal tumor.
Glioneuroma of iris and ciliary body.
TLDR
A 20-year-old woman was noted to have progressive cataractous changes in the left eye for two years and ophthalmic examination showed a yellow-pink mass in the iris root, which was diagnosed as glioneuroma.
Glioneuroma (choristomatous malformation of the optic cup margin). A report of two cases.
TLDR
These benign tumors resemble well-differentiated mature brain tissue, and are believed to represent choristomatous malformations developed from divergent differentiation of the neuroepithelial cells at the advancing margin of the invaginated optic cup.
Rhabdomyosarcomatous differentiation in malignant intraocular medulloepitheliomas
TLDR
Four intraocular medulloepitheliomas have been found to contain rhabdomyosarcomatous elements and in all cases, there was a remarkable blending of all components of the tumors—the medullOepit Heliomatous, the mesenchymal, and the undifferentiated.
Synaptophysin in the human retina and retinoblastoma. An immunohistochemical and Western blotting study.
TLDR
The results support a primarily neuronal origin for this tumor and point to the possibility that synaptic elements, previously observed in a few cases, may be more frequent in retinoblastoma than had been thought.
