The masquerades of a childhood ciliary body medulloepithelioma: A case of chronic uveitis, cataract and secondary glaucoma" by Chua et al is a case report of a healthy two year old boy who presented with a unilateral cataract, anterior uveitis and glaucoma after an innocuous history of blunt ocular trauma. The diagnosis of a ciliary body medulloepithelioma was only made over a year later when the child presented with a mass lesion in the ciliary sulcus .Prior to this diagnosis, the child had undergone several intraocular procedures such as lensectomy, anterior vitrectomy, trans-scleral cyclophotocoagulation laser procedure as well as a glaucoma drainage surgery. Enucleation was eventually performed, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy in view of the malignant histological features of the tumor as well as the possible risk of periorbital tumor seeding due to the presence of a Baerveldt tube implant.
