Intraocular manifestations of malignancies and lesions elsewhere in the body are widely reported. The ophthalmic features can be due to metastasis in case of malignancy or due to the secondary effects of the lesions causing hematological or neurological complications. On a few occasions, the ocular features predominate and even precede the characteristic features pertaining to the underlying conditions. In such cases, an ophthalmologist can be the first clinician to encounter the patients. The ocular presentations can be bizarre or even misleading, but on careful history elicitation and examination could unveil life-threatening diseases lying hidden elsewhere inside the human body. Here, we present two case reports, where the ocular features helped in the diagnosis of primary pathology elsewhere.
