A 10-month-old infant with a small, unilateral, peripheral retinal lesion also had a large, well-encapsulated, suprasellar retinoblastoma.

It is postulated that primary intracranial tumors may arise within areas of the central nervous system embryologically related to the retina in patients with the genetic form of retinoblastoma.
