Abstract

Recently, this journal published a paper from Marr et al 1 concerning multi-drug intra-arterial chemotherapy (IAC) for intraocular retinoblastoma. In many centres IAC has quickly garnered exciting interest, emerging as a promising, highly effective alternative for globe conserving treatment.2–4 In our institution, IAC with melphalan (IACM) has been performed since June 2008, and topotecan was added in June 2011. Fifty-nine patients have at least 1 year follow-up. Here we report our results obtained with IACM.
