Abstract A 64-year-old man presented with a nonrhegmatogenous retinal detachment, proptosis, and ptosis. Clinical examination, fluorescein angiography, B-scan ultrasonography and computed tomographic (CT) scan confirmed the presence of concomitant intraocular tumor and orbital mass. The CT scan of the chest and a lung biopsy specimen revealed the presence of an unsuspected asymptomatic bronchogenic carcinoma that rapidly developed widespread metastases. Metastasis to the eye from bronchogenic carcinoma may occur simultaneously with orbital metastasis, and this may be associated with rapid progression and growth.
