Choroidal metastasis from recurrent ovarian cancer is extremely rare. To our knowledge, this report is the first such case of endometrioid adenocarcinoma. A 30-year-old pregnant woman presented to an ophthalmologist in January 1999 because of a rapid visual deterioration. Ophthalmologic evaluation revealed a metastatic choroidal tumor from ovarian cancer which had been diagnosed 10 years ago. After cesarean section, multiple metastases were found including the choroid, scalp, bone, and lung, and she received four courses of single agent carboplatin chemotherapy. She died of disease in July 1999. This case highlights the need to investigate the etiology of visual complaints in patients with a history of ovarian cancer even in the early stage.
