Abstract

PURPOSE: To determine whether treatment of macular retinoblastoma with chemotherapy and laser hyperthermia can lead to satisfactory visual acuity. METHODS: A child with unilateral macular retinoblastoma was treated with chemotherapy and laser hyperthermia. Visual function was assessed one year after treatment. RESULTS: At age 25 months, the patient had normal visual behavior and a normal spatial-sweep visual-evoked potential. CONCLUSION: Treatment of macular retinoblastoma with chemotherapy and laser hyperthermia may enable recovery of satisfactory visual acuity.
