Answer

Patients with juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) who have known cutaneous lesions should be seen regularly and screened for the development of ocular or other noncutaneous lesions.

Patients with iris tumors should undergo prompt treatment.

Patients presenting with hyphema should be monitored closely after acute management for ocular sequelae and management of amblyopia when appropriate.
