Abstract

Metastatic carcinoma to the conjunctiva is a rare tumour that reflects advanced disease with a poor prognosis. A case of conjunctival metastatic breast carcinoma is described which developed 9 months after the primary cancer was removed, and led to the detection of diffuse systemic malignancy. The tumour responded to intravenous chemotherapy.
