Abstract

A 66-year-old man had a pigmented choroidal lesion in his right eye. Over a subsequent period of 8 1/2 years, the lesion showed slight growth. At autopsy, the diagnosis was spindle B melanoma of the choroid without evidence of systemic metastasis. A very unusual feature of this case was the presence in this patient of seven primary malignant tumors and five benign neoplasms. In addition to the choroidal melanoma, these included three distinct pulmonary carcinomas, leiomyosarcoma of the stomach, adenocarcinoma of the sigmoid colon, and basal cell carcinoma. The literature on multiple malignancies in association with uveal melanoma is reviewed.
