VILLAR CHAMORRO, E. et al. Advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) debuting with choroidal metastases. Oncología (Barc.) [online]. 2006, vol.29, n.1, pp.51-54. ISSN 0378-4835.

We present the clinical case of a 65 year old patient with right visual field disturbance as debut of a disseminated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), without any other symptom. Ophthalmoscopy detected choroidal metastases, that fluorescein angiography delimited and differentiated from hemorrhage and hemangioma. The case emphasizes the infrequent production of metastases in this area by this tumor, and, above all, the unusual clinical debut.

Keywords : Choroid metastases; Non-small cell lung cancer; Ophthalmoscopy.
