Traditionally, the paraneoplastic retinopathies have been classified into two groups: melanoma-associated retinopathy (MAR) and cancer-associated retinopathy. MAR occurs in individuals with metastatic cutaneous or uveal melanoma and is characterized by nyctalopia, photopsias, and variable vision loss. In most cases, the fundus is essentially normal in appearance. More recently, there have ...
