Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This paper reports all cases of retinoblastoma occurring in Victoria over a 20-year period between 1956 and 1976. It suggests that the natural history of treated retinoblastoma in an Australian community, is characterized by low mortality (8.3%), but significant morbidity. The most common problem in management of unilateral cases was one of diagnosis in contrast to bilateral cases, in which the problem was one of maintaining useful vision whilst at the same time eradicating a life-threatening tumour. Suggestions are made as to how management of retinoblastoma may be further improved, and the need for an active national register is discussed.
