LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The 4-month-old daughter of actress Hunter Tylo, who won a lawsuit after she was fired from ``Melrose Place'' for becoming pregnant, has a rare form of eye cancer.

Katya, who was born Jan. 15, suffers from retinoblastoma, an eye cancer that strikes about one in 15,000, Ms. Tylo said Thursday.

The disease typically appears in children under 5 years old. Treatments include the removal of the eye and chemotherapy.

``We learned that there are many treatments to cure retinoblastoma and thankfully the cure rate is extremely high,'' Ms. Tylo said.

Ms. Tylo, 34, won a $4.9 million judgment in December after she was fired from the prime-time soap opera for becoming pregnant with Katya. A judge upheld that award April 2.

She and her husband have three other children.
