Abstract

MALIEPAARD, M et al. Ocular metastasis as initial presentation in breast cancer. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2017, vol.107, n.8, pp.694-696. ISSN 2078-5135.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/samj.2017.v107i8.12352.

Two patients presented to their ophthalmologists with vision disturbances. On ocular examination, retinopathic lesions were observed. On subsequent examination, these lesions were diagnosed as metastases of breast cancer. Neither patient had a history of breast cancer. In patients with breast cancer and multiple metastases, ocular metastases are well described. However, the latter is uncommon as a presenting complaint.
