Abstract Over an 18 year period 42 patients with ocular metastases, age 30–75 years, 27 female and 15 male, were evaluated echographically. The right eye was affected in 18, the left in 17, and both eyes in 7. The most frequent primary tumours were carcinomas from breast (n = 25), lung (n = 6), and urinary bladder (n = 2). The choroidal metastases appeared mainly flat‐infiltrating or dome‐shaped, on B‐scan. A‐scan generally revealed high or medium reflectivity, however with important exceptions. Atypical cases are discussed. Usually eyes with metastases should not be enucleated. Accordingly, ultrasonic evaluation and follow‐up is of obvious importance. 1992 Institution Acta Ophthalmologica Scandinavica

Abstract

Abstract Over an 18 year period 42 patients with ocular metastases, age 30–75 years, 27 female and 15 male, were evaluated echographically. The right eye was affected in 18, the left in 17, and both eyes in 7. The most frequent primary tumours were carcinomas from breast (n = 25), lung (n = 6), and urinary bladder (n = 2). The choroidal metastases appeared mainly flat‐infiltrating or dome‐shaped, on B‐scan. A‐scan generally revealed high or medium reflectivity, however with important exceptions. Atypical cases are discussed. Usually eyes with metastases should not be enucleated. Accordingly, ultrasonic evaluation and follow‐up is of obvious importance. 1992 Institution Acta Ophthalmologica Scandinavica
