Abstract

Adenomas of the non-pigmented epithelium of the ciliary body are rare neoplasms and most of the studies are in the form of case reports. There are only 27 documented cases of acquired neoplasm of the non-pigmented ciliary epithelium (NPCE) reported in the English literature. In most reports, there was a clinical suspicion of melanoma and the diagnosis of NPCE adenoma was made on histopathological evaluation of the resected tissue. The entity has not been reported in the Pakistani population to date. This report describes a case of ciliary body adenoma of NPCE in a 27 year old Pakistani man. The histological and immunohistochemical profiles were typical of the adenomas described in the literature.
