Conclusion

Ultrasound findings were comparable to that of MRI in patients of retinoblastoma and PHPV. Ultrasound is a highly sensitive diagnostic tool for differentiating between the two diseases in paediatric leukocoria patients. It can be used as a screening tool in resource poor settings having limited sophisticated imaging modalities for early diagnosis and management.
