Melanoma-associated spongiform scleropathy (MASS) is a non-inflammatory scleral degenerative change with a spongiotic morphology seen in the sclera associated with uveal melanoma. This degenerative change was seen in the inner side of the sclera in contact with the pigmented mass. It is usually seen in an elderly person with choroidal melanoma. We report a case of MASS in a large choroidal melanoma in a 58-year-old Indian man supported by histopathology, special histochemical stains, and immunohistochemistry.
