[Recurrent choroidal detachment in a patient undergoing hormone therapy for prostate cancer].

An 85-year-old male patient receiving hormone therapy for prostate cancer and secondary open-angle pseudoexfoliation glaucoma developed peripheral choroidal detachment in both eyes. The patient had been admitted to the eye hospital for clarification of a vascular occlusion in the left eye. Cerebral magnetic resonance imaging could exclude metastases and a cerebral space-occupying lesion as the cause of the ocular findings. The local antiglaucomatous treatment was interrupted and as a result the intraocular pressure normalized and the choroidal detachment receded completely. Patients with prostate cancer who receive hormone therapy should also undergo regular ophthalmological screening including funduscopy and measurment of intraocular pressure.
