Abstract:
Retinoblastoma is the most common malignant intraocular tumor in children. The most important initial symptoms are leukocoria and strabismus. As long as a retinoblastoma is diagnosed while it is still confined to the eye, survival is excellent in > 95% of children. Retinoblastoma may affect one or both eyes. The aim of treatment is to secure survival and especially for patients with bilateral disease, to retain as much vision as possible. A variety of eye-retaining treatment options are available, including systemic and local chemotherapy as well as focal ophthalmological treatment procedures (e.g. laser therapy, thermotherapy, cryotherapy and episcleral plaque brachytherapy). Almost 50% of affected children suffer from the heritable form of retinoblastoma that predisposes them to the development of further tumors outside the eye; they therefore require life-long follow-up. Treatment and follow-up are a multidisciplinary team effort.
