Resumen

PEREZ GARCIA, Diley et al. Choroidal metastasis of a breast carcinoma. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.1, pp.161-168. ISSN 0864-2176.

The case of a 55-year-old woman with diagnosis of multinodular Grade II ductal infiltrating carcinoma in left breast was presented in this article. She presented with temporal visual field defect in her left eye. A choroidal metastatic tumor was diagnosed by indirect binocular ophthalmoscopy, confirmed by ocular echography. The primary tumor was removed by surgery and the choroidal lesion was treated with systemic chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and external beam radiation therapy. Six months after the treatment, the choroidal metastasis showed complete regression, and the best visual acuity of 20/20 was recovered, which was the initial value at the diagnosis of disease.

Palabras clave : Choroidal metastasis; breast cancer.
