Ciliary body metastasis from prostate adenocarcinoma completely resolves with systemic therapy
Dec 23, 2020
We find this case to be interesting for a several reasons. First, the presentation of solitary metastasis to the anterior chamber angle secondary to prostate adenocarcinoma is highly unusual. Second, from a management standpoint, this patient did not require invasive intraocular biopsy in order to establish diagnosis. Third, the ocular metastasis responded completely to androgen deprivation therapy rather than the conventional radiotherapy techniques frequently used to treat intraocular tumors and his vision was fully restored. Finally, this case required collaboration between a large number of subspecialty services, and consequently we feel it will appeal to a wide audience.
