    Uveal melanoma is the most common primary malignant intraocular neoplasm in adults. The aims of treatment of the uveal melanoma are to prevent the metastatic spread of the disease and to preserve as much useful vision as possible. Although enucleation has been the traditional treatment of uveal...

    Objectives: SOX-10 has been shown to be a sensitive marker of cutaneous melanoma. This study aimed to evaluate Sox-10 expression in uveal melanoma. Methods: A total of 40 tissue blocks of enucleated eyes with uveal melanoma were cut and stained using an anti-SOX-10 mouse monoclonal antibody and...
