AGUIAR, Lia Paula Miranda et al. Ophthalmic manifestations of neuroendocrine carcinoma: case report. Arq. Bras. Oftalmol. [online]. 2005, vol.68, n.3, pp.377-379. ISSN 1678-2925.

Ophthalmic manifestations of neuroendocrine carcinoma. This case report describes the clinical apresentation, diagnosis and treatment of a case of neuroendocrine carcinoma. A 43-year-old man presented with ocular manifestation due to orbital and brain metastasis of neuroendocrine carcinoma. The histopatologic and imunohistochemical analysis suggested the diagnosis. Partial and temporary remission of the symptoms occurred after the first chemotherapy cycle. We discuss the importance of creating treatment guidelines for this type of neoplasm, that can be very agressive and fatal.

Keywords : Carcinoma, neuroendocrine [complications]; Orbital neoplasms [secondary]; Orbital neoplasms [drug therapy]; Vincristine [therapeutic use]; Prednisone [therapeutic use]; Eye manifestations; Case report.
