    Description
    A 3-month-old boy was noticed to have a pupillary reflex on his left eye. A diagnosis of bilateral retinoblastoma was made and the left eye was enucleated. The small tumor on the right eye was treated with radiation. Imaging of the brain revealed a tumor in the region of the choroid plexus consistent with a choroid plexus carcinoma. A removal of the brain tumor was attempted.
