Melanoma is a neoplasm known for its propensity for cardiac involvement. When there exists an isolated metastasis to the heart, the melanoma tends to involve the right heart. Rarely does melanoma metastasize to the left ventricle. We report the first case of choroidal melanoma that had indeed metastasized to the left ventricle and was associated with a patent foramen ovale, which may explain its initially surprising location on this side of the heart.
