Med J Malaysia. 2011 Jun;66(2):156-7.

Abstract

Trilateral retinoblastoma is the association of hereditary bilateral or unilateral retinoblastoma with a pineal neuroblastic tumour. We describe two cases of trilateral retinoblastoma from a total of 141 cases of retinoblastoma seen over an 8.5 year period. Both had a fatal outcome, with survival times of only 4 and 8 months respectively.
