Renal cell carcinoma represents a rare site for intraocular metastasis. Given the severity of systemic disease in many of these cases, intraocular treatment options remain limited and can be associated with significant ocular morbidity with limited benefit for vision restoration. A 70-year-old Caucasian man presented with a ciliary body tumor as a result from metastasis from renal cell carcinoma. It was preferable to treat the ciliary body tumor in the least invasive manner possible based on the patient's health, systemic metastasis, and the invasiveness of local resection. The tumor was treated with intravitreal bevacizumab for attempted tumor regression. Complete tumor resolution occurred following three injections.
