Ultrasound Biomicroscopy of the Ciliary Body in Ocular/Oculodermal Melanocytosis

Purpose: To describe the ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) findings of the ciliary body in patients with ocular/oculodermal melanocytosis.Design: Retrospective observational case series study.Methods: A retrospective chart and imaging database review was conducted for patients with unilateral ocular/oculodermal melanocytosis who underwent UBM examination at the Ocular Oncology Clinic of Princess Margaret Hospital. Radial images of the ciliary body at the 3-, 6-, 9-, and 12-o'clock positions were obtained in both eyes. UBM characteristics included ciliary body thickness and reflectivity. The eye with ocular/oculodermal melanocytosis was compared with the contralateral unaffected eye as a control. Statistical significance was analyzed with Student t test.Results: (Read more...)
