Abstract A 55-year old woman with growing unilateral subfoveal choroidal metastasis of breast carcinoma was treated by photodynamic therapy (PDT) with verteporfin. Best corrected visual acuity remained stable during the whole follow-up of 6 months. Tumor flattened from 2.2 mm to 0 mm on ultrasound one month after the therapy. PDT with verteporfin appears to be the best tolerated method for palliative treatment of growing subfoveal choroidal metastasis of the breast carcinoma.
