We report a rare case of vitreoretinal metastases from cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM). A 76-year-old patient with CMM presented at our clinic complaining of floaters and blurred vision in his right eye. After conducting an exploratory vitrectomy, the diagnosis of vitreoretinal metastases from CMM was made. Histopathology of the enucleated eye demonstrated residual clusters of malignant cells in the vitreous and focal invasion of the inner retina. CMM metastatic to the retina and vitreous is very rare. A detailed ophthalmological examination in all patients with metastatic CMM and complaints of ocular symptoms is highly recommended.
