The Nature of the Malignant Choroidal Melanomata
Writing in 1904, Parsons upheld Ribbert’s (1911) view that malignant pigmented choroidal growths were sarcomata, and is still of the same opinion. Dawson (1925) re-affirmed Unna’s (1893) suggestion that these growths were epithelial in origin and therefore carcinomata, but the great majority of authors now hold the neurogenic theory, and believe that choroidal melanomata are derived from the cells of Schwann belonging to the ciliary nerves.
