BACKGROUND: Peripheral primary cyst of the iris is an uncommon benign condition that may masquerade as a tumor of the ciliary body. Careful examination utilizing the slit lamp and gonioscopy is necessary to successfully differentiate the two. CONCLUSIONS: Given their uncommon occurrence and the importance of ruling out melanoma or other malignancies, this review is a guide in the evaluation and diagnosis of patients with this condition.
