We report a 23-month-old patient presenting with multifocal iris melanoma who underwent plaque brachytherapy with full corneal coverage. The lesion demonstrated several high-risk clinical and histopathologic features associated with iris melanoma in adults, including growth and angle seeding. The patient has been subsequently followed for 3.5 years with no evidence of recurrence. This report demonstrates the importance of serial examination of suspected melanocytic iris lesions in very young children and the effective treatment option of globe-sparing radiation therapy.
