Retinoblastoma, the ocular tumor of childhood, is unusual in its genetic implications, the frequency of occurrence of second primary tumors, the association of a 13q14 chromosome deletion, and the high incidence of spontaneous regression. This article reviews the clinical and histopathologic features of the disease and briefly summarizes histopathologic findings regarding cell death and tumor necrosis in retinoblastoma.
