Author information

Department of Clinical Oncology, Auckland Hospital, New Zealand.


This report describes 11 patients who developed visual symptoms due to choroidal or orbital metastases from carcinoma of the breast. All patients were treated using palliative radiotherapy with regression of metastases in five of six patients (83%) having choroidal involvement and three of five patients (60%) having orbital metastases. There were no complications due to radiotherapy. All these patients had advanced metastatic breast cancer with poor survival following development of orbital or choroidal metastases.
