Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Choroidal metastasis from prostate adenocarcinoma is exceedingly rare. Furthermore, data addressing the optimal therapeutic strategy is limited. A 62-year-old male patient with metastatic prostate cancer was found to have a choroidal metastasis after complaining of decreased vision in his left eye. Following treatment with external beam radiotherapy, complete response in the choroidal metastasis was demonstrated. A literature search was undertaken to highlight the therapeutic options for this rare presentation. Choroidal metastasis secondary to adenocarcinoma of the prostate is exceedingly rare, as only eight cases have been reported so far. External beam radiotherapy is an effective therapeutic modality.
