Palpebro-Orbital Metastases from Breast Adenocarcinoma.
Pak J Ophthalmol Jan ;11(1):15.
A 56-year-old woman developed left palpebral and anterior orbital metastases five years after radical mastectomy for adenocarcinoma of the breast. This uncommon lesion caused aching, passive congestion, ptosis, and restriction of elevation, with diplopia, of the left eye, probably due to the involvement of the superior rectus and the levator muscles. The diagnosis was confirmed by ultrasonography and CT scanning. Despite chemotherapy and radiation, the patient`s general condition went- on deteriorating, and she passed away 14 months following the diagnosis of ocular metastases.
