Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

A 62-year-old man manifested multiple nodular growths in his left iris and unilateral glaucoma. Detailed clinical and pathologic studies showed that these lesions were adenomas derived from the spurs of Fuchs, Michel, and Grunert in the iris pigment epithelium. We suggest terming this newly described entity nodular adenomatosis of the iris pigment epithelium and propose a classification of primary neoplastic lesions of the iris.
