Metastases are the most common adult intraocular tumors. However, those located in the optic nerve are very uncommon and are usually associated with spread to other locations such as the central nervous system, which darkens the prognosis. There is a case of a 67-year-old woman who reports progressive vision loss in the right eye of 15 days of evolution. The ophthalmological examination shows a relative afferent pupil defect in this eye and a pseudoedema of the papilla with retinal hemorrhages in the fundus. Personal history and characteristics of the optic nerve suggest the diagnosis of metastatic infiltration.
