Intraocular neoplasia may cause secondary glaucoma. If an intraocular prosthesis is placed in an eye with glaucoma secondary to intraocular neoplasia, the neoplasm frequently regrows around the prosthetic ball, resulting in recurrence of buphthalmos and signs of pain. Histologic examination of eviscerated intraocular contents of 4 animals resulted in diagnosis of intraocular neoplasia in 2 glaucomatous eyes and ruled out neoplasia as the cause of glaucoma in 2 eyes.
