Abstract

Although metastasis to the eye is the most common ophthalmic malignancy, it is usually asymptomatic and rarely a presenting symptom that leads to the diagnosis of a primary. Here, we report a patient who was evaluated for visual symptoms and was eventually diagnosed to have disseminated adenocarcinoma of the lung. He was treated with external radiotherapy to the choroidal metastasis, attaining an excellent response that was sustained until his death. A brief review on the role of radiotherapy in the management of uveal metastases is also presented.
