Controlled Aspiration of Subretinal Fluid in the Diagnosis of Carcinoma Metastatic to the Choroid

Controlled Aspiration of Subretinal Fluid in the Diagnosis of Carcinoma Metastatic to the Choroid Abstract • Carcinoma metastatic to the choroid was diagnosed in three patients by cytopathologic examination of subretinal fluid. The specimen was obtained using a scleral depressor modified to allow controlled aspiration of subretinal fluid through a sharp, angled, 30-gauge needle. This new method provides a useful tool for accurate diagnosis of carcinoma metastatic to the choroid in cases where the diagnosis is in question. References 1.

Abstract • Carcinoma metastatic to the choroid was diagnosed in three patients by cytopathologic examination of subretinal fluid. The specimen was obtained using a scleral depressor modified to allow controlled aspiration of subretinal fluid through a sharp, angled, 30-gauge needle. This new method provides a useful tool for accurate diagnosis of carcinoma metastatic to the choroid in cases where the diagnosis is in question. References 1.
