We report a ciliary body melanoma that apparently arose from a melanocytoma in a 15-year-old black teenager. The eye was enucleated, and metastatic evaluation remained negative at 5 years' follow-up. This unusual case, confirmed histopathologically, reveals that young patients with melanocytoma can have malignant transformation at an early age.
