We report the case of a 9-month-old girl with bilateral retinoblastoma who had incomplete tumor resolution after selective ophthalmic artery infusion chemotherapy (SOAIC). Systemic chemotherapy, rarely used as salvage therapy after SOAIC, with systemic carboplatin, etoposide, and vincristine achieved complete and sustained regression in both eyes.
