Iridociliary melanoma represents a rare and aggressive variant of intraocular melanoma. We report the case of a 30-year-old male with iridociliary melanoma that started as a uveitis masquerade syndrome. Noninvasive, stereotactic radiosurgery with CyberKnife® at a dose of 27 Gy to the 90% isodose line was promptly performed. Six months after treatment, no postoperative complications were observed. The patient achieved local tumor control, maintained a 20/20 visual acuity, and no signs of systemic metastasis were observed. The versatility and outpatient nature of CyberKnife® make it an option to consider for the multidisciplinary management of these patients.
