Abstract

Chemoreduction failure in this article was defined as unresponsive or, more commonly, recurrent retinoblastoma. Older patient age, greater tumor thickness, presence of vitreous seeds and subretinal fluid at baseline, and retinal tumor recurrence after chemoreduction were factors associated with the need for enucleation.
