Adenoma of the Ciliary Body Non-Pigmented Epithelium

This thirteen year-old male first noted a spot on the iris seven moths before this evaluation. A fine needle aspiration biopsy revealed was most consistent with a congenital iris cyst of epithelial origin. Five years later the lesion had grown substantially and an iridocyclectomy was performed. The mass was found to be an adenoma of the non-pigmented epithelium of the ciliary body.”
