Risk of retinoblastoma is associated with a maternal polymorphism in dihydrofolatereductase (DHFR) and prenatal folic acid intake.
Prenatal ingestion of synthetic folic acid supplements may be associated with increased risk for early childhood carcinogenesis in a genetically susceptible subset of the population.
Diagnostic delay and sociodemographic predictors of stage at diagnosis and mortality in unilateral and bilateral retinoblastoma
Our results demonstrate differing effect of social factors on extent of intra- and extraocular disease depending on laterality with implications for screening strategies.
Systematic review of the current status of programs and general knowledge of diagnosis and management of retinoblastoma.
This systematic review aims to report the current knowledge of retinoblastoma (Rb) and its implications in Mexico. We analyzed clinical and demographic data of patients with Rb at select hospitals with Rb programs or that treat and refer patients with Rb, and identified the gaps in practice.
Minimal Disseminated Disease in Nonmetastatic Retinoblastoma With High-Risk Pathologic Features and Association With Disease-Free Survival
Fatal metastatic relapse may occur in children with retinoblastoma and high-risk pathologic features (HRPFs).These findings identified a high-risk population of children with retinoblastoma and HRPFs with MD.
Outcomes and complications after phacoemulsification in retinoblastoma patients with cataract after radiation treatment
Cataract surgery produces a statistically significant improvement in visual acuity. These patients have increased risk for eye complications in the mid- and long-term. It is important to conduct a close follow up due to reactivation of tumour.
