Subretinal lipid exudation associated with untreated choroidal melanoma.

Minija CK, Shanmugam MP - Indian J Ophthalmol (2011 May-Jun)

Bottom Line: There is only one case report of untreated choroidal melanoma with massive lipid exudation in a patient with metastatic hypernephroma.Subretinal exudation that is rarely seen following plaque brachytherapy was noted at the borders of this untreated tumor.Lipid exudation partially resolved following brachytherapy.

ABSTRACT
Subretinal lipid exudation in an untreated choroidal melanoma is very rare. It is seen following plaque radiotherapy in choroidal melanoma. There is only one case report of untreated choroidal melanoma with massive lipid exudation in a patient with metastatic hypernephroma. We report here a rare case of untreated choroidal melanoma with lipid exudation. Subretinal exudation that is rarely seen following plaque brachytherapy was noted at the borders of this untreated tumor. Lipid exudation partially resolved following brachytherapy.

Figure 4: AB mode ultrasonography shows a dome shaped choroidal mass

Mentions: The combined A-mode and B-mode ultrasonography of the right eye showed a dome-shaped mass 8.66 mm, the longest basal diameter, and 3.66 mm in height with low-to-medium internal reflectivity, without orbital shadowing, but with minimal choroidal excavation; the findings were suggestive of choroidal melanoma [Fig. 4].
