Abstract

We report 2 cases of malignant melanoma in anophthalmic sockets of patients who had undergone eviscerations 30 and 60 years ago. The histopathologic analysis showed that the tumors were adherent to scleral remnants. The implications of these cases were discussed in the context of the indications of evisceration and enucleation.
