Abstract

Pigmented epithelioid melanocytoma (PEM) of the skin has been rarely reported in ophthalmology. The purpose of this case report is to present a young male born with a progressive, hyperpigmented lesion involving the orbit and intracranial cavity diagnosed as PEM. The case is unique given the young age and the size, multifocality, and growth of this tumor. Identification of this lesion is paramount due to its low-grade malignant potential.
