Primary iris leiomyoma.

Surv Ophthalmol 2017 May - Jun;62(3):366-370. Epub 2016 Nov 24.

Department of Ophthalmic Oncology, Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Electronic address:

Intraocular leiomyomas are uncommon and usually occur in the ciliary body. Primary leiomyoma of the iris is both rare and a difficult diagnosis to make, given melanocytic tumors are more common and may be amelanotic. The somewhat controversial diagnosis of iris leiomyoma requires further confirmation by immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy. Read More

Unsuspected uterine leiomyosarcoma: magnetic resonance imaging findings before and after focused ultrasound surgery.

Int J Gynecol Cancer 2007 May-Jun;17(3):724-8. Epub 2007 Feb 9.

Department of Gynecology, Shinsuma Hospital, Kobe, Hyogo, Japan.

Uterine leiomyosarcoma, initially diagnosed as leiomyoma on magnetic resonance (MR) images, was disclosed after focused ultrasound surgery (FUS). The tumor did not display high signal intensity on either T1- or T2-weighted images on the patient's first visit. Four months thereafter, T2-weighted images revealed a high signal intensity area within the tumor, while T1-weighted images showed low signal intensity. Read More

Vet Ophthalmol 2003 Jun;6(2):173-6

Department of Veterinary Clinical Studies, University of Glasgow, UK.

A leiomyoma of the iris is described in an 11-year-old Yorkshire Terrier. This is a rare primary intraocular tumor in dogs and we describe the clinical presentation, gross findings and histopathologic characteristics of this tumor. The diagnosis was made on the basis of light microscopy and immunohistochemical staining using antidesmin antibodies, which is specific for myogenic tissues. Read More

Leiomyoma of the ciliary body extending to the anterior chamber: clinicopathologic and ultrasound biomicroscopic correlation.

Surv Ophthalmol 2000 Jan-Feb;44(4):336-42

Medical and Vision Research Foundation, Chennai, India.

Leiomyoma of the ciliary body is a rare tumor that often causes a diagnostic dilemma. Sclerouvectomy has been found to be beneficial in the management of iris and ciliary body leiomyoma. We treated a case of leiomyoma of the ciliary body presenting as a fleshy mass in the anterior chamber, removed by partial lamellar sclerouvectomy. Read More

Skeinoid fibers in mesectodermal leiomyoma of the ciliary body.

Ultrastruct Pathol 1997 Nov-Dec;21(6):559-67

Department of Pathology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

Unlike smooth muscle elsewhere in the body, the smooth muscle of the iris and ciliary body is derived from neuroectoderm (mesectoderm). Leiomyomas that arise from the ciliary body, and therefore are of mesectodermal origin, may resemble spindle cell neurogenic tumors by light microscopy. They show positive immunostaining for smooth muscle actin but negative staining for neural markers. Read More

A leiomyoma of the iris documented by immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy.

Acta Ophthalmol Scand 1997 Aug;75(4):470-3

University Eye Department, The National Hospital, Rikshospitalet, University of Oslo, Norway.

Purpose: To report an iris leiomyoma documented in accordance with today's stricter diagnostic criteria.

Methods: Light microscopy, immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy were performed on the 3 mm ball-like, greyish-white vascularized tumour of the iris, close to the sphincter pupillae.

Results: Light microscopy of the extirpated neoplasm showed the characteristic appearance of a leiomyoma with densely packed spindle-shaped cells, with oval nuclei and granular cytoplasm. Read More

Are most intraocular "leiomyomas" really melanocytic lesions?

Ophthalmology 1994 May;101(5):919-24

Department of Ocular Oncology, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK.

Background: Intraocular smooth muscle tumors have long been a subject of controversy. The advent of immunohistochemistry with antibodies against HMB-45, S-100, smooth muscle actin, desmin, and vimentin has helped greatly in the distinction between smooth muscle tumors and melanocytic lesions.

Methods: Twenty-seven archival tissue blocks from patients who had had intraocular leiomyomas or leiomyosarcomas diagnosed were located and fresh sections cut and stained for the above markers. Read More

Fortschr Ophthalmol 1989 ;86(6):631-5

The clinical, surgical and light microscopical features of a mesectodermal leiomyoma of the ciliary body are presented. Slit-lamp examination of a 63-year old woman strongly suggested a malignant lesion of the ciliary body and the peripheral choroid. Following cryoretinopexy and argonlaser-photocoagulation, the tumor and the adjacent portion of the cornea, angle structures, iris, ciliary body, choroid and sclera were removed en bloc. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, Tenri Hospital, Tenri City, Japan.

The case of a 28-year-old woman with a well-vascularized, yellowish neoplasm in her right eye is reported.

A contact Nd:YAG laser to resect large ciliary body and choroidal tumors.

Int Ophthalmol 1987 Oct;11(1):55-61

LSU Eye Center, Louisiana State University Medical Center, School of Medicine, New Orleans.

We used a contact Nd:YAG laser fit with a 0.2-mm diameter sapphire tip to excise a large (5 1/2 clock hour) iris ciliary body-choroidal tumor and a large (15 X 8 X 3 mm) choroidal tumor. The cutting and coagulation action of the laser helped to minimize intraoperative and postoperative hemorrhage. Read More

Mesectodermal leiomyoma of the ciliary body extending into the anterior chamber.

Ophthalmologica 1985 ;191(2):127-9

A neoplasm of the ciliary body extending from the equator to the iris and the anterior chamber was observed in an 18-year old girl. Because the visual acuity was lost and the clinical diagnosis was uncertain the eye was enucleated. Both optic and electron microscopic investigations allowed the diagnosis of the mesectodermal type of leiomyoma of the ciliary body. Read More

[Fluoroangiography of various pathological pictures in unusual observations of the anterior segment].

Boll Soc Ital Biol Sper 1984 Jun;60(6):1253-9

Fluorangiography is a very important investigation in order to have a differential diagnosis in all pathological pattern of the conjunctiva of scleral corneal limbus of the sclera of the iris of the ciliary-body. We have in the literature two different patterns: A) Fluorescein negative pattern (cystic neoformations, benign tumors with or without pigment) B) Fluorescein positive pattern (inflammatory pseudotumors, malignant tumors). Authors agree more or less with this classification; they have, moreover, worked out some variations. Read More
