4 Ophthalmic Pathology and Intraocular Tumors
Part I: Ophthalmic Pathology
Chapter 12: Uveal Tract
Dalen-Fuchs nodules may be seen in some cases of sympathetic ophthalmia and are located between the retinal pigment epithelium and Bruch membrane.
The uveal tract is the most common site of ocular involvement in sarcoidosis, a nonnecrotizing granulomatous condition.
Tumor cell type, tumor size, extraocular extension, and tumor location, including ciliary body involvement, are prognostic factors in posterior uveal melanoma.
Metastatic tumors to the uvea constitute the most common intraocular tumors in adults.
