    SUBMILLIMETER CHOROIDAL MELANOMA DETECTION BY ENHANCED DEPTH IMAGING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY IN A PATIENT WITH OCULODERMAL MELANOCYTOSIS

    Purpose: To describe a tiny subclinical choroidal melanoma visualized only with enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography in a newly symptomatic patient with known oculodermal melanocytosis. Methods: Case report. Results: A 52-year-old white man with heterochromia and known oculodermal melanocytosis of the right eye, followed for 2 years without change, developed blurred vision and was referred for possible central serous chorioretinopathy. On examination, visual acuity was 20/20 in each eye. There was oculodermal melanocytosis in the right eye involving the periocular skin, episclera, iris, and choroid. On ophthalmoscopy and ocular ultrasonography, there was no appreciable mass, but subtle subfoveal ...
