Abstract

An infant girl with failure to thrive and bilateral retinoblastoma had a translocation of the long arm of chromosome 13 to the short arm of the X chromosome, and possible loss of a portion of the q14 band. The lack of other major organ malformations in this patient emphasized the importance of considering chromosomal aberrations as a possible etiology of retinoblastoma in patients with nonspecific psychomotor retardation.
