Choroidal metastasis is the most common intraocular malignancy followed by ocular melanoma. This presentation is reported commonly in breast and lung malignancies with multifocal involvement of one eye, or involvement of both eyes. In lung cancer, it is seen in 50-60 year old males with histopathological diagnosis of adenocarcinoma. Here we report the rare occurrence of squamous cell carcinoma lung in 35 year-old female with choroidal metastasis as initial presentation in a patient who had undergone treatment for carcinoma hypopharynx as metachronous second primary.
