  • Frederick C. Blodi


Leiomyomas of the uveal tract are extremely rare tumors. There is not much clinical significance to these neoplasms, as they do not represent a considerable percentage of all the uveal tumors. They are, however, of great pathologic interest and have caused a considerable amount of speculation as to their genesis, histologic differentiation, and clinical picture.
