PURPOSE To characterize the clinical spectrum of class 1 and class 2 uveal melanomas and their relationship with intraocular proton radiation response. DESIGN Masked retrospective case series of uveal melanoma patients with fine needle biopsy-based molecular profiles. METHODS A total of 197 uveal melanoma patients from a single institution were analyzed for pathology, clinical characteristics, and response to radiation therapy. RESULTS A total of 126 patients (64%) had class 1 tumors and… CONTINUE READING
