n CME : Your SA Journal of CPD - Retinoblastoma - to expand awareness : main article




Retinoblastoma is the most common eye cancer that occurs in the retina of infants or young children. It occurs in 1:20 000 births and can be unilateral in 60% or bilateral in 40% of cases. The clinical signs can sometimes be subtle and are often missed, which could lead to delay in diagnosis, possibly loss of vision or even loss of life. Both the public and health professionals in South Africa need education to expand awareness of retinoblastoma.
