Case Report

A Rare Tumour in Chinese: The First Reported Case of Paediatric Uveal Melanoma in Hong Kong and Literature Review

CH Fu, JJT Chan, HL Yuen, CW Luk


Abstract

Differential diagnosis of paediatric malignant ocular tumour is limited, with retinoblastoma being the most common among all ethnicities in the world. The incidence of paediatric malignant cutaneous melanoma among Asians is low and paediatric ocular melanoma is even scarce. We reported the first case of paediatric malignant ocular melanoma in Hong Kong, a 10-year-old boy with a large localised choroidal melanoma managed by enucleation uneventfully. Genetic tests for high-risk features were negative. He remained under close surveillance with no evidence of metastasis 1 year post enucleation.
