About this book

This book is a comprehensive resource on the current understanding of retinoblastoma. It addresses all the essential aspects of retinoblastoma and its management, including: its molecular biology and genetics, management by focal treatment, intraarterial and intravitreal chemotherapy, electroretinogram monitoring of treatment, pharmacokinetic studies, high-risk features, treatment of metastatic disease, and long-term follow-up. The book represents a collaborative project involving ophthalmic oncologists, geneticists, pediatric oncologists, interventional neuroradiologists, electrophysiologists, and basic scientists who are at the forefront of their field. It is written in an accessible manner, and a wealth of tables, figures, and exemplary images are included to enhance the understanding of concepts.
