Choroidal melanoma is the second most common primary malignant melanoma of the body. The most common site for metastasis of choroidal melanoma is liver. Isolated brain metastases in choroidal melanomas is extremely rare. Enucleation is the classic treatment approach to choroidal melanomas and has been the preferred modality of treatment for large and complicated tumors, which compromise visual function and for which other therapies tend to fail. Prognosis of such cases are extremely poor. We report a case of a 47 year old male who presented to us with headache and right sided hemiparesis, and later was diagnosed as a case of choroidal melanoma with isolated brain metastasis.

Keywords: Choroidal melanoma, Enucleation, Tumor, Metastasis.
