- Color fundus montage of a 45-year-old female presenting with ocular metastasis affecting her left eye. She had been treated for pneumonia, had progressive lumbar back pain, and a 29 pound weight loss recently. She reported that she had a breast lump and a mammogram, but had not been provided the results. After she was sent to oncology, it was confirmed that she has widely metastatic breast cancer and tumors throughout the brain. The oncology team felt she could not wait weeks for her chemotherapy to start and consequently decided to do whole brain radiation and treat the affected eye just posterior to the lens.
