Abstract

Choroidal metastases have been observed in about 8% of patients with metastatic breast cancer, even if their true incidence is likely to be higher, as they are not routinely investigated in the absence of symptoms. Radiotherapy is the treatment of choice for symptom palliation. The prognosis is traditionally poor, with a reported average survival of one year. Here we describe the third case reported in the literature of a metastatic tumor to the choroid from a male breast carcinoma.
