Design: Prospective studyMethod: Here, we have a case series of six patients diagnosed with RB fromJanuary 2020 to July 2020 and discuss their clinical features, treatment, outcome and its prognostic factors. Detailed examination will be carried out and assessment will be done.Result: 6 patients were studied for 6 months and prognostics factors were evaluated. 66% patients had delayed presentation, 33% belonged to lower socioeconomic class,16% were having associated family history.
