Abstract: Paraneoplastic syndromes associated with prostate cancer that cause visual disturbances are rare. We present the case of a 71 year old man with a history of adenocarcinoma of the prostate who developed cancer associated retinopathy concomitant with small cell transformation. This represents an unusual paraneoplastic syndrome that may be progressive and irreversible, requiring prompt diagnosis and treatment to preserve visual function and guide further oncological care.
