Abstract Paraneoplastic retinopathy appears to represent a nonmetastatic remote effect of carcinoma and is characterized by rapid visual deterioration accompanied by narrow arterioles seen on ophthalmoscopic examination and an extinguished electroretinogram. This syndrome has been described in postmenopausal women, and it is possible that it represents an autoimmune disorder. Corticosteroid therapy may arrest the visual deterioration.
