A retrolenticular fibrovascular membrane occurred in the setting of a ciliary body mass in a 10-year-old black girl who had been successfully treated for a rhabdomyosarcoma of the lung. The results of a transscleral biopsy of the mass demonstrated it to be a pigmented adenoma of the ciliary body. A lensectomy and membranectomy were performed to aid in the follow-up and rehabilitation of the eye. At 9 months after surgery, the patient had 20/25 vision with no evidence of tumor growth. This case demonstrates an unusual cause of cyclitic membrane formation and suggests that transscleral biopsy may be a useful adjunct in the management of selected ciliary body masses.
