Abstract

Twenty‐five patients with choroidal melanoma are presented who subsequently developed disseminated disease. Fifteen of 25 patients developed hepatic metastases as the sole initial manifestation of metastatic disease. The median time from enucleation to hepatic metastases was 43 months and the survival from onset of metastatic spread was 7 months.
