Abstract:
Ocular metastasis of solid tumours are a scarcely diagnosed clinical entity, nevertheless breast cancer possesses the highest incidence of orbital involvement. We report a case of choroidal metastasis as initial manifestation following surgery for breast cancer in a 35-year-old woman who presented with diplopia and worsened visual acuity 2 years after surgery. Choroidal metastesis had been documented to be a frequent finding in disseminated breast cancer. The crucial point in our patient is its occurance as the first manifestation of distant metastases. Ocular smyptomatology in a breast cancer patient should alert the physician to consider the eye for the initial metastatic involvement.
