The authors report a case of malignant melanoma associated with Budd-Chiari syndrome, that is unique for two reasons; the malignant melanoma metastases arose from an ocular primary site and the patient had not been treated with antimetabolite therapy. A review of neoplasms associated with Budd-Chiari syndrome accompanies the case report.
