Abstract

Retinoblastoma is a rare intraocular malignant tumour more commonly seen in children below five years
of age. We presented a rare case of retinoblastoma in a 7 year old child who came to the ophthalmology
OPD with complaints of loss of vision in both eye and deviation in right eye. Fundus examination showed
multiple floating cotton ball opacities in vitreous cavity. B-scan was suggestive of Group E retinoblastoma in
right eye and Group D retinoblastoma in left eye. To conclude, any unexplained visual loss in children of any
age should be examined extensively by an ophthalmologist, as the risk of retinoblastoma cannot be ruled out.
