Iris metastasis is one of the rare forms of ocular metastasis. Lung and breast cancers represent more than two thirds of the primary tumor sites in such patients. We here present the 18F-FDG PET/CT findings in a 60-year-old male patient with small cell lung cancer where metastasis to iris was incidentally discovered on PET/CT.
