Ciliary Body and Choroidal Pseudomelanoma from Ultrasonographic Imaging of Hypermature Cataract in 20 Cases – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To describe a series of 20 patients with opaque media, referred with uveal melanoma, but subsequently found to have pseudomelanoma from oblique imaging of hypermature cataract on ultrasonography.Design: Case series.Participants: Twenty patients.Methods: Retrospective chart review.Main Outcome Measures: Ultrasound imaging.Results: All eyes had opaque media from hypermature cataract with no view of the fundus. All were referred because of suspected uveal melanoma, based on ultrasonographic imaging. The echogenic mass appeared to be in the ciliary body (n = 17) or choroid (n = 3). The median patient age was 54 years (range, 17–86 years). Most patients were white (n = 13) or black (Read more...)
