Definition

Leukocoria:

A white pupillary reflex. When one shines a bright light on the pupil, it normally appears red. In leukocoria, the light makes the pupil look white.

This occurs with a number of eye diseases including congenital cataract and retinoblastoma, retinal dysplasia, and retinopathy of prematurity.
