Optic disc melanocytoma and glaucoma

Semin Ophthalmol. Jul-Sep 2007;22(3):147-50. doi: 10.1080/08820530701457209.

Abstract

An 82-year-old man presented with optic disc melanocytoma and glaucomatous optic neuropathy. The coexistence of these findings is particularly challenging, as there is no specific means for differentiating whether the optic nerve damage is glaucoma- or melanocytoma-related.
