Abstract

Purpose : To report four cases who received CyberKnife radiosurgery for choroidal malignant melanoma. Cases : CyberKnife radiosurgery was performed on 4 cases of choroidal malignant melanoma. The series comprised 3 males and one female. The age ranged from 57 to 82 years. The height of the tumor ranged from 2.8 to 6.7 mm, average 5.3 mm. Each eye received a case 10 Gy of radiation per session totaling 50 Gy after 5 sessions. The tumor showed a decrease in size. The height ranged 0.2 to 5.2 mm, average 3.9 mm after 6 to 36 months of treatment. One eye developed vitreous hemorrhage. Otherwise, there was no local recurrence or rubeotic glaucoma. Conclufion : CyberKnife radiosurgery was effective in four cases of choroidal malignant melanoma.
