Abstract

Purpose: To report two cases of invasive uveal melanomas, one of which showed multifocality,Methods: Clinical examination, ultrasonography, colour Doppler analysis, cytological and histopathological evaluations. Results: Transvitreal biopsy (case 1) or fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) (case 2) revealed malignant melanomas in both patients, Light microscopy and immunohistochemical examinations substantiated the diagnosis of mixedcell type melanomas, In addition, one patient had a multifocal melanoma with papilloedema and colour Doppler findings suggestive of optic disc involvement. Conclusion: Transvitreal biopsy for histology or cytology is a reliable procedure to obtain an accurate diagnosis without delay of a lesion adjacent to the optic nerve head. In our two cases the biopsy findings led to enucleation.
