Ciliary body medulloepithelioma is a nonpigmented tumor which presents during the first decade of life. It is rarely seen in newborn infants. We report a pigmented medulloepithelioma in a newborn infant, which showed a rapid growth. Ciliary body medulloepithelioma should be considered in the differential diagnosis in a newborn infant presenting with leukocoria.
