Abstract

This paper will summarize much of the information derived in an association between The Department of Radiation Oncology of Hahnemann University Hospital and the Oncology Service of Wills Eye Hospital of Thomas Jefferson University, a collaborative effort for the treatment of primary intraocular malignancies that has spanned the last dozen years. In that time we have treated malignant intraocular melanoma by radioactive eyeplaque brachytherapy and have begun to develop a similar program for treatment of recurring retinoblastoma. These experiences will be described.
