Abstract

Vision impairment as an initial presentation detecting choroid metastasis in primary lung cancer is rare. Prevention or treatment of visual loss and improvement in quality of life can be achieved by treatment of intraocular metastasis. The survival of the patient in choroid metastasis with lung primary is poor with the median survival being 3.3 months. However, proper treatment may increase the quality of life and survival to an extent. We report a case of adenocarcinoma of lung in a female patient, presented initially with visual impairment as a result of choroidal metastasis and treated with external beam radiotherapy for choroidal metastasis followed by palliative chemotherapy. The patient was survived with improved vision and quality of life since last 12 months of diagnosis.
