Magnetic resonance imaging in the evaluation of leukocoria.

Abstract

Leukocoria is an important clinical sign in ophthalmology. Conditions producing this white pupillary reflex must be differentiated from retinoblastoma to insure appropriate and timely treatment. Auxiliary diagnostic testing has been helpful in securing a clinical diagnosis. A new diagnostic modality, magnetic resonance imaging, provides similar morphologic information with the additional potential for biochemical characterization. A series consisting of 14 patients presenting with leukocoria as a result of retinoblastoma and simulating conditions was examined. The magnetic resonance imaging findings are discussed.
