ABSTRACTRetinoblastoma is the most common malignant intraocular tumor in childhood, representing about 4% of all cancers at that stage of life and 1% in general. A description is provided of a late-onset panuveitic retinoblastoma in an 11-year-old male patient initially diagnosed with ocular toxocariasis. The disease is rare in people over 8 years of age, but it should be included in the differential diagnosis. Late or mistaken diagnosis constitutes a risk to life and a worse visual prognosis.
