[Article in German]


The author reports on a 43-year-old patient who, having been treated for a conjunctival melanoma by local resection, presented 6 years later with a recurrent melanoma of a superficial spreading type, having a nodular and a flat component. While lamellar corneal excision was performed on the nodular component, the flat portion was treated with beta-contact radiation. The results are described and the argument for this therapy discussed.
