Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment secondary to isolated retinal metastasis from small cell lung carcinoma: An uncommon complication
MetadataShow full item record
Purpose: To report a case of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment associated with isolated retinal metastasis from lung carcinoma. Methods: Multimodal imaging, including wide-field retinal imaging, ultrasonic imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging. Results: Systemic chemotherapy and cranial prophylactic radiotherapy resulted in shrinkage of these lesions and retinal breaks making them much smaller and preventing progression of retinal detachment transiently. Conclusion: This is the first reported case of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment secondary to retinal metastasis from a lung cancer.
