Is this a melanoma?


 This cat has been referred with a possible iris melanoma.

 What is your opinion?

 It’s black and it looks a bit sinister for sure, but this is ectropion uveae, migration of the pigmented epithelium of the posterior face of the iris through to the anterior face.  A much less severe example is seen in the fellow eye, with a focal anterior cataract in for good measure!
