Figure 2: Surgical and histopathological results. (a) Gross evaluation of the iridectomy specimen demonstrated a solid vascular amelanotic iris mass with (b) histopathology features of neoplasm composed of a syncytial arrangement of cells with cigar-shaped nuclei, finely dispersed chromatin, linear nuclear folds, and inconspicuous nucleoli (spindle A melanoma cells, white arrow) intermixed with cells with ovoid nuclei and prominent nucleoli (spindle B melanoma cells, black arrow) (H and E; ×100). Cells with morphology intermediate between spindle B and epithelioid melanoma cells are present (white arrow). (c) A mitotic figure is noted (black arrow) (H and E; ×100). (d) Appearance of iris after 14 years showing sector iridectomy and no evidence of tumor
