Breast carcinoma is one of the most common primary tumors of metastatic choroidal tumors. The average time from the breast cancer diagnosis to metastasis to the eye and orbit has been reported to be approximately 4 years. We report an unusual case of the choroid as the first recurrence site in a 48-year-old woman with a history of breast cancer. In our reported case, the patient had a 13-year interval between the breast cancer surgery and the identification of the first and sole metastasis to the choroid. We present this unusual case, and to analyze the clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemical findings, so as to differential diagnosis from other choroidal tumors.
