Abstract

Purpose: To describe a peculiar case of paraneoplastic vitelliform maculopathy/retinopathy in a patient with treated choroidal melanoma. Methods: A case report of a 58-year-old woman with a history of treated choroidal melanoma 16 years before developing visual changes in the setting of metastatic choroidal melanoma. Results: We demonstrate bilateral, multifocal vitelliform subretinal lesions and focal, neurosensory retinal detachment associated with metastatic melanoma. Conclusion: Paraneoplastic vitelliform maculopathy/retinopathy should be considered in patients with or without a history of melanoma, who have unexplained serous, vitelliform retinal detachments, especially with atypical or absence of leakage on fluorescein angiography.
