Diffuse infiltrating retinoblastoma

J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus. May-Jun 1989;26(3):152-4. doi: 10.3928/0191-3913-19890501-15.


A young child was examined for unilateral hyphema of 1 month duration with a questionable history of blunt trauma. Ultrasonography was negative for tumefaction. Two months later the media cleared, revealing a diffusely abnormal retina. Computed tomography demonstrated a diffusely thickened posterior pole containing calcium. Histopathology of the enucleated globe was consistent with a diffuse infiltrating retinoblastoma. This is the first report of computed tomographic findings in diffuse infiltrating retinoblastoma.
