Abstract

This proposal for the reporting of uveal melanoma should be implemented for the following reasons:

  • to ascertain staging of the disease
  • to provide histological prognostic information
  • to provide accurate data for cancer registration
  • potentially to assist in selecting patients for future trials of adjuvant therapy
  • to provide data for clinical audit and effectiveness
  • to provide a database for research.
