BARBON, J.J. et al. Regression of a choroidal metastasis from prostate adenocarcinoma after hormonal therapy. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2007, vol.82, n.11, pp.715-717. ISSN 0365-6691.
Case report: We report a case of a patient diagnosed with prostatic adenocarcinoma with multiple bone metastases and a choroidal metastasis in his left eye. Hormonal therapy with an anti-androgen and a LH-RH agonist was followed by regression of the choroidal mass over a period of 2 months. No metastatic recurrence has been demonstrated after a follow-up period of 14 months. Discussion: Complete resolution of choroidal metastases of prostatic adenocarcinoma with hormonal therapy is exceptional, but the effect of this treatment on such metastases should be observed before recommending radiation therapy.
