ABSTRACTRetinoblastoma is one of the most frequent malignant intraocular tumors in the pediatric age group, and it is possible that there is affectation to other sites such as the contralateral eye, hence, it is important to maintain periodic controls even after being diagnosed and treated.
Currently it is known that this pathology can be either hereditary or spontaneous and has an important genetic component, specifically a mutation of the tumor-suppressor gene called RB1, which is also associated with other diseases.
