Raoudha Doghri, Lamia Charfi, Yoldez Houcine, Nadia Boujelbene, Karima Mrad and Maha Driss

Medulloepithelioma is a rare congenital neuroepithelial tumor commonly arising from the non-pigmented ciliary body epithelium and rarely from iris, retina or the optic nerve. It occurs in patient under 10 years. It is a rare neuroepithelial tumor and is the second most frequent intraocular tumour in children after retinoblastoma. Unlike cases reported in the literature in which the tumour recurs rapidly, recurrence occurred in our case five years later.
