Abstract

The choroid is the most common site for intraocular metastatic disease. Orbital metastasis as metastatic site of lung adenocarcinoma is very rare and in literature a very exiguos number of cases is present. This is a case report of a wiìoman with history of lung adenocarcinoma and, after surgery, detection of a choroidal mass described as lung metastasis, responding to Gefinitib therapy. However a biopsy was non performed. After two years there was a great dimension decrement of the lung metastasis but she is still suffering from recurrent pleural effusion, with pleural thickening biopsied and diagnosed as recurrence disease.
