Retinoblastoma is one of the more highly invasive and common intraocular malignancies of childhood. Treatment in most of the cases
consists of enucleation followed by placement of orbital implants. Prosthetic rehabilitation is especially challenging in younger and
precooperative pediatric patients. The following case report describes the rehabilitation of a 4-year-old child with retinoblastoma, with an ocular
prosthesis fabricated by a simplified technique.
