Abstract: 

Purpose: To report a case of choroidal malignant melanoma metastasis to the contralateral orbit five years after enucleation.
Patient and findings: A 70-year-old man with symptom of proptosis and decreased visual acuity came to our clinic. He had history of choroidal malignant melanoma in his left eye 5 years ago and the eye was enucleated at that time. Biopsy from his right orbit showed malignant melanoma. Radiotherapy was recommended but he refused further treatment. After six months he came to the clinic with severe proptosis and pain. Vision was NLP. He underwent radiotherapy and the proptosis was cured and his pain resolved.
Conclusion: Orbital involvement after enucleation due to malignant melanoma is rare but possible even after many years therefore carefully and regularly examination of the fellow eye after enucleation is mandatory.
