CASE REPORT: A 50 years old male presented with whitish mass (6.5mm x 3mm) in anterior chamber of left eye involving root of iris reaching upto mid periphery from 2 to 5 o’clock. The patient was worked up for metastasis. No evidence of metastasis was found. The mass was excised and sent for histopathological examination which revealed amelanotic melanoma of iris.
CONCLUSION: Amelanotic melanomas of iris are unusual in Indian population. They can invade adjacent structures and can also cause metastasis in distant organs. Amelanotic melanoma of the iris must be included among the other differential diagnoses when examining patients with discolouration of iris.
