Abstract

Aim

The aim of this case report is to describe the technique and response using frameless radiosurgery technique in intraocular metastases.

Background

Intraocular metastases are the most common malignant lesion within the eye and its prevalence is probably underestimated. This is of great interest for oncologist as there are new treatment options with high rates of tumor control maintaining patient's quality of life.

Case Report

We report a case of a 54-year-old female with intraocular metastases from breast cancer using a frameless radiosurgery technique allowing organ preservation.

Conclusion

The frameless robotic radiosurgery system is feasible and comfortable option for patients with intraocular metastases. Treatment planning and delivery requires an experienced interdisciplinary team.
