Abstract

The association of intraocular tumours and glaucoma has long been recognised. We report a case of localised iris melanoma previously treated with iridiocyclectomy and later requiring enucleation for the uncontrolled glaucoma and possible recurrence of diffuse iris melanoma. We discuss the diagnostic difficulties due to increase in iris pigmentation associated with the use of latanoprost and the management options of patients with intraocular tumour and secondary glaucoma.
