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 electrore-tinogram. 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.
