  • [Title] Array comparative genomic hybridization in retinoma and retinoblastoma tissues.
  • Two unilateral cases also showed areas of retinoma.
  • In one retinoma case ophthalmoscopically diagnosed as a benign lesion no rearrangements were detected, whereas the adjacent retinoblastoma displayed seven aberrations.
  • The other retinoma case identified by retrospective histopathological examination shared three rearrangements with the adjacent retinoblastoma.
  • Two other gene-free rearrangements were retinoma specific.
  • Genomic profiling indicated that the first retinoma was a pretumoral lesion, whereas the other represents a subclone of cells bearing 'benign' rearrangements overwhelmed by another subclone presenting aberrations with higher 'oncogenic' potential.
  • This is the first report of genomic profiling in retinoma tissue, shedding light on the different nature of lesions named 'retinoma'.

  • [Title] Germline mutations in retinoma patients: relevance to low-penetrance and low-expressivity molecular basis.
  • PURPOSE: To study phenotype-genotype correlation in patients who have retinoma, which is a benign tumor resembling the post irradiation regression pattern of retinoblastoma (RB).
  • METHODS: We selected patients who had retinoma and positive family history for RB and patients who had retinoma in one eye and either retinoma or RB in the other eye.
  • There was no correlation between the type of mutation and the number of tumor foci per eye (RB or retinomas).
  • CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this study is the largest series of mutations of consecutive retinoma patients.
  • The present data suggest that the type of inherited mutations underlying retinoma is undistinguishable from RB related ones, i.e., largely dominated by truncating mutants.
  • The molecular mechanism underlying low-penetrance and attenuated expressivity (retinomas) appeared to be distinct.

  • [Title] Evolution of a retinoma case in 21 years.
  • A 35-year-old man was observed during a 21-year period with fundus color photography, fluorescein angiography, and B-scan ultrasonography for a presumed retinoma detected in his left eye during routine ophthalmoscopy in 1982.
  • His retinal lesion remained stable during the follow-up period without signs of malignant transformation.
  • Retinomas are most commonly observed in patients with retinoblastoma and their relatives.
  • In this case, none of the patient's parents, siblings, or children had evidence of a retinal tumor.
  • Photographic documentation of the nonprogressive nature of this presumed retinoma is provided and demonstrates the absence of growth.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Genomic differences between retinoma and retinoblastoma.
  • INTRODUCTION: Genomic copy number changes are involved in the multi-step process transforming normal retina in retinoblastoma after RB1 mutational events.
  • Retinoma is a benign variant of retinoblastoma that was initially considered a tumor regression, but recent evidences suggest that it rather represents a pre-malignant lesion.
  • Genetic studies on retinoma tissue have rarely been performed.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We investigated by Real-Time qPCR, copy number changes of candidate genes located within the 4 hot-spot regions (MDM4 at 1q32.1, MYCN at 2p24.1, E2F3 at 6p22 and CDH11 at 16q22) in retina, retinoma and retinoblastoma tissues from two different patients.
  • RESULTS: Our results demonstrated that some copy number changes thought to belong to early (MDM4 gain) or late stage (MYCN and E2F3 gain) of retinoblastoma are already present in retinoma at the same (for MDM4) or at lower (for MYCN and E2F3) copy number variation respect to retinoblastoma.
  • CDH11 copy number is not altered in the two retinoma samples, but gain is present in one of the two retinoblastomas.
  • DISCUSSION: Our results suggest that MDM4 gain may be involved in the early transition from normal retina to retinoma, while MYCN and E2F3 progressive gain may represent driving factors of tumor progression.
  • These results also confirm the pre-malignant nature of retinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Loss of RB1 induces non-proliferative retinoma: increasing genomic instability correlates with progression to retinoblastoma.
  • We now demonstrate that loss of both RB1 tumor suppressor gene alleles initiates quiescent RB1(-/-) retinomas with low level genomic instability and high expression of the senescence-associated proteins p16(INK4a) and p130.
  • Although retinomas can remain unchanged throughout life, highly proliferative, clonal and aneuploid retinoblastomas commonly emerge, exhibiting altered gene copy number and expression of oncogenes (MYCN, E2F3, DEK, KIF14 and MDM4) and tumor suppressor genes (CDH11, p75(NTR)) and reduced expression of p16(INK4a) and p130.
  • We suggest that RB1 inactivation in developing retina induces genomic instability, but senescence can block transformation at the stage of retinoma.
  • However, stable retinoma is rarely clinically observed because progressive genomic instability commonly leads to highly proliferative retinoblastoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: To determine the frequency of histopathologic risk factors in a large series of retinoblastomas treated by enucleation on file in the pathology laboratory of a large American eye hospital, assess the relationship between tumor differentiation and age at enucleation, and investigate the frequency of photoreceptor differentiation and the role of retinoma/retinocytoma as retinoblastoma precursor.
  • In all, 20.4% of tumors contained foci of photoreceptor differentiation, which localized in the base of a predominantly endophytic tumor in about one-fourth.
  • Both preceding observations provide evidence for the hypothetical role of retinoma as a retinoblastoma precursor.
  • Retinoblastomas become progressively less differentiated with time and may be spawned by precursor retinomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RECENT FINDINGS: Current data demonstrate that retinomas, benign retinal tumors found in some retinoblastoma patients, exhibit bi-allelic mutations in RB1, the retinoblastoma gene, and lack of expression of the retinoblastoma protein.
  • Interestingly, retinomas demonstrate a low level of genomic instability that becomes progressively more severe in retinoblastoma tumors.
  • Additionally, a subset of retinomas share genomic alterations with retinoblastoma.
  • Collectively, these data suggest that retinomas represent true premalignant lesions and not regressed retinoblastoma tumors, as previously thought.

NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program. NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We studied the expression of pro-apoptotic neurotrophin receptor p75 (p75(NTR)) in human and murine retinoblastoma, compared to normal retina, and examined changes in p75(NTR) expression with the onset of apoptosis in the course of murine retinoblastoma progression, using immunohistochemistry and quantitative real-time RT-PCR.
  • The murine retinoblastoma is induced by retinal specific expression of SV40 T-antigen (TAg), which blocks the function of the retinoblastoma protein (pRB) and related proteins, and is a well-studied model that closely simulates human retinoblastoma.
  • The majority of human retinoblastoma either lacked or expressed decreased levels of p75(NTR) mRNA, compared to human retina.
  • Moreover, p75(NTR) protein was not detected in any tumor studied, unlike normal retina.
  • Furthermore, in three rare human eyes containing retinoblastoma adjacent to regions resembling the benign retinal tumor retinoma, both normal retina and retinoma-like tissue expressed p75(NTR) protein, while the retinoblastoma did not.
  • We suggest that p75(NTR) loss accompanies progression from retinoma to retinoblastoma.

  • RECENT FINDINGS: The most significant recent findings in the molecular biology of retinoblastoma include the evidence for aneuploidy and genomic instability as cancer causes rather than the long-held Knudson's 'two-hit' hypothesis; the evidence that retinoma may represent a precursor lesion for retinoblastoma prior to the acquisition of genomic instability; and the evidence that a horizontal interneuron may be the cell of origin in murine knockout retinoblastoma and may be capable of clonal expansion after differentiation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Malignant transformation of retinocytoma into retinoblastoma.
  • PURPOSE: To describe presumed malignant transformation of a single retinocytoma into retinoblastoma in a child with multifocal retinocytomas.
  • Ophthalmic evaluation showed one retinocytoma (spontaneously regressed retinoblastoma/arrested retinoblastoma) in each eye and one active endophytic retinoblastoma in the left eye.
  • RESULTS: Histopathologic examination disclosed a small predominantly endophytic retinoblastoma with extensive vitreous seeding in association with a basal focus of well differentiated tumor with photoreceptor differentiation, suggestive of retinocytoma.
  • The findings were consistent with malignant transformation of retinocytoma into retinoblastoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Patients presumed to have retinocytoma at clinical evaluation should have lifelong follow-up for the remote possibility of malignant transformation.

  • [Title] Malignant transformation of congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium.
  • PURPOSE: To report a clinicopathologic correlation of an adenocarcinoma that arose from solitary congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (CHRPE).
  • It had features typical of CHRPE, but there was a small elevated nodule within the flat component, and the diagnosis was adenoma of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) arising from CHRPE.
  • The nodule slowly enlarged, and increasing amounts of lipoproteinaceous exudation accumulated in the adjacent retina.
  • Ultrasonography revealed a total retinal detachment and a pedunculated tumor measuring 7.5 mm in thickness.
  • RESULTS: Histopathologically, the mass was composed of a proliferation of atypical RPE cells with a marked infiltration of benign plasma cells.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium, once considered to be a benign and stationary lesion, may spawn a malignant neoplasm.
