Metastasis is the most common ocular malignancy. An atypical clinical presentation whoever, can delay the diagnosis, particularly when there is no history of malignant disease. Our patient initially presented with a painful red eye and a subretinal mass, but without signs of intraocular inflammation or glaucoma. The results of the diagnostic work-up were inconclusive. Postmortem histopathologic examination revealed a metastasis to the posterior choroid.
