A 29-year-old male was incidentally diagnosed with amelanotic choroidal melanoma in the nasal quadrant of the right eye following an ocular examination due to accidental entry of an insect in the eye. The patient underwent right eye stereotactic Gamma Knife radiosurgery. The tumor mass showed regression six months after therapy. After 12 months, the patient presented again with diminution of vision with recurrence of choroidal mass and total retinal detachment. He underwent a right eye enucleation. Histopathological examination revealed spindle-shaped cells arranged in fascicles and immune stain positivity for S-100 and negative for HMB-45 and Melan-A—suggestive of schwannoma.
