Can J Ophthalmol 2007 Apr;42(2):305-6

Department of Ophthalmology, McGill University, Montreal, Que.

Case Report: A 72-year-old man referred for evaluation of a uveal melanoma was revealed with primary prostate adenocarcinoma metastatic to the choroid.

Comments: Differential diagnosis of choroidal tumours may be difficult but should include both uveal melanoma and metastatic carcinoma to the uvea. Proper diagnosis and treatment is of great relevance for increasing survival rates.
