Abstract:   (8179 Views)

Purpose : To report two cases of retinoblastomas detected by “white pupillary reflex” end-gaze leukocoria via flash photographs reported by parents

Case reports : Retinoblastoma, a malignant ocular tumor, can be manifested by leukocoria. Herein, we report two cases, a 4-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl, presented with the parents' chief complaint of end-gaze leukocoria. In further evaluations retinoblastoma was detected and treated.

Conclusion : Leukocoria is an alarming sign specially in pediatrics age group which should be detected and treated promptly. It may be detected solely in end-gaze by the child's parents or in photographs in the early stages of retinoblastoma.
