Abstract

We report the first case of distichiasis combined with entropion in a HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer patient treated by pertuzumab, trastuzumab, and docetaxel combination therapy. After 7 months, she had ocular complaints including pain, irritation, burning, dryness, and redness in her both eyes. Ophthalmologic examination revealed distichiasis and a mild entropion involving her lower eyelids bilaterally. She remained free of symptom and in complete response to maintenance chemotherapy. © 2019 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
