Ciliary body metastasis in a patient with non-small cell lung carcinoma--incidental detection with 18F-FDG PET/CT


Ciliary body metastasis in a patient with non-small cell lung carcinoma--incidental detection with 18F-FDG PET/CT

Ciliary body metastasis in a case of lung cancer is very rare. Intraocular metastasis by any cancer most commonly involves choroid followed by iris and ciliary body. We present a case of a 71-year-old male with non-small cell lung cancer who was found to have an 18F-FDG avid right lung mass. Incidentally a focus of abnormal increased 18F-FDG uptake was noted in the region of ciliary body in the right eyeball. The findings were confirmed to be a metastatic lesion in ciliary body on Ultrasonography and MRI. Our case depicts this extremely rare occurrence corroborated by various modalities.
