• Two months after a complete response to doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide administered for systemic effects, with the disappearance of pulmonary and pleural metastases from adenoid cystic carcinoma of salivary origin, a patient experienced symptomatic choroidal metastasis with no other evidence of active disease. Irradiation produced complete disappearance of the choroidal metastasis and restoration of visual acuity. The literature is reviewed, and the unusual nature of this metastasis is discussed.
