ABSTRACT: A 32-year-old man had dysgenesis of the corpus callosum associated with iris nevi and conjunctival malignant melanoma. Iris
lesions revealed intrastromal proliferation of melanocytes accompanied by surface plaque. Epithelioid and spindle cells with
pigmentation, positive for the melanoma marker HMB-45 and S-100 protein, were observed in the conjunctival lesion by histologic
examination. These findings may suggest an underlying neoplastic potential of melanocytes.
