Abstract

Retinoblastoma (Rb) most frequently presents as a unilateral sporadic disease up to 40% of cases, however, arise from a monoallelic germline pathogenic variant. Only 10% of the germline mutations are inherited, and high penetrance is seen in up to 90% of these cases. As an effort to optimize counseling and screening, mutations are classified according to inheritance patterns. However, RB1 spectrum is highly heterogeneous, and information for unaffected carriers remains scarce.
