• To our knowledge, only nine cases of retinal metastases from a primary cutaneous melanoma have been reported in the literature. A 44-year-old man had bilateral retinal metastases and choroidal metastasis documented clinically with color photography and fluorescein angiography. When ocular metastases occur, they usually are preceded by a known diagnosis of the skin lesion, usually of the superficial spreading type, with dermal invasion and widespread visceral and CNS involvement.
