Retinal metastatic tumors
The most common form of intraocular malignancy is metastatic disease. The most common primary sites are the lung in men and the breast in women. Retinal metastases are much rarer than those in the choroid. Biopsy is useful for confirming the diagnosis and may indicate the location of the primary tumor. Most patients are treated with radiotherapy; however, a multidisciplinary approach to management is needed. Despite successful eradication of the retinal metastasis, patient survival prognosis is poor.
