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.

Mentions: Following a normal metastatic disease evaluation, the patient underwent episcleral brachytherapy with Ru106 delivering 8500 cGy to the tumor apex. Follow-up after seven months of brachytherapy showed partial resorption of the lipid exudation, with reduction of the tumor basal diameter from 8.66 mm to 6.53 mm and tumor height from 3.66 mm to 2.56 mm [Fig. 6].
