Clinicians regularly face the confronting challenge of differentiating a choroidal naevus from a melanoma. Uveal naevi are a relatively common finding during routine eye examinations: a prevalence of 6.5 per cent has been reported.1 In contrast, malignant melanomata are uncommon, being found in six persons per million population, but they can have devastating implications and consequences.2 Differential diagnoses can be difficult to make with certainty; any additional information that can assist in this process is advantageous...

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
