Achromatic choroidal melanoma: Case report and literature review.

Objective: To describe a case of achromatic melanoma.

Result: This is a retrospective case of a 39 years old female patient with a visual acuity decrease of 06/20 OD, in whom the biomicroscopic examination was normal, with a fundus in favour of a nonpigmented mass with retinal detachment at OD. B-mode ultrasound revealed a hyperechoic domed mass. The characteristic T1 hypersignal and T2 hyposignal appearance and enhancement after injection of gadolinium was found on MRI and management was enucleation of the right eye. The diagnosis of choroidal melanoma was confirmed on pathological examination, which found a spindle cell type.
