Abstract

ANDRADE, Gabriel Costa de et al. Trilateral retinoblastoma with unilateral eye involvement. Rev. Assoc. Med. Bras. [online]. 2015, vol.61, n.4, pp.308-310. ISSN 1806-9282.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1806-9282.61.04.308.

Retinoblastomas (RB) are the main forms of intraocular tumor in childhood, with a worldwide incidence of 1 case per 15,000 to 20,000 live births. Trilateral RB (RBT) is a rare combination of unilateral or bilateral RB with a midline intracranial neoplasm of neuroblastic origin, usually found in the pineal region or the suprasellar region, presenting variable incidence of 0.5% up to 6% among patients with RB. The article reports a case of unilateral RBT in a patient treated at Hospital A.C.Camargo.

Keywords : retinoblastoma; eye neoplasms; infant.
