Benign tumors of the ciliary body are rare and may potentially be confused with uveal melanoma in clinical routine. Clinical findings rarely allow for safe differentiation. Hence primary excisions are frequent. We report the case of a patient with a benign ciliary tumor, which was observed over a total of 13 years and eventually underwent a local tumor resection.
