One of the treatment options for intraocular retinoblastoma is thermochemotherapy with diode laser combined with chemotherapy. Very little is known about the evolution of laser scars resulting from diode laser treatment for retinoblastoma. We report a case of atrophic chorioretinal scar and focal scleral bowing after thermochemotherapy with diode laser for retinoblastoma.
