Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of retinoblastoma in a child with oculocutaneous albinism (OCA). Methods: A 24-month-old girl with classic features of OCA developed leukocoria in the left eye. Results: The patient was found to have an endophytic retinoblastoma and an exophytic retinoblastoma, with a total retinal detachment and neovascularization of the iris. Enucleation was performed, and histopathology confirmed massive retinoblastoma with optic nerve involvement to the posterior margin of the lamina cribrosa but no choroidal invasion. Conclusion: Although rare, retinoblastoma can occur in children with OCA.
