Masquerade syndromes are disorders occurring with intraocular inflammation misdiagnosed as uveitis. The underlying causes may be benign or malignant conditions, and one of the most important diagnoses to take into consideration in children is retinoblastoma. We present two cases with uncertain early misdiagnosis whose definite diagnosis eventually was retinoblastoma.
