Abstract

Purpose:

To describe the clinical characteristics and results of ocular and systemic testing in an atypical case of cancer-associated retinopathy.

Methods:

This study is a retrospective case report of a female patient.

Results:

Rapidly progressive visual loss, vitritis, white, ring- and coin-shaped retinal lesions, and panretinal optical coherence tomography thinning preceded the diagnosis of poorly differentiated cervical carcinoma with neuroendocrine features consistent with small-cell carcinoma.

Conclusion:

Cancer-associated retinopathy can present with ring- and coin-shaped retinal lesions, vitritis, and panretinal thinning. The presence of intraocular inflammation and retinal and choroidal vasculopathy may herald more rapid visual demise.
