Abstract

A history of blindness in one eye since childhood, the fundus appearance of the other eye, and the family history of elevated plasma levels of carcinoembryonic (CEA) antigen and colorectal carcinoma led us to diagnose bilateral spontaneously regressed retinoblastoma. Massive gliosis of the retina was found in the eye enucleated because of blindness and pain. The diagnosis of regressed retinoblastoma should be considered where the pathologic diagnosis of an enucleated eye is massive gliosis of the retina, but where no known cause is present.
