Neuroblastoma - An Unusual Presentation
MetadataShow full item record
Neuroblastoma is relatively a common malignant solid tumour in childhood. Half of the cases occur in children two years of age and younger and three quarters before 4 years of age. Neuroblastoma develops from neural crest tissue. The first clinical manifestation is often due to metastatic lesions which minic other conditions so well that the diagnosis may be difficult. A case of Neuroblastoma with an unusual presentation with persistant haemothorax has been reported and discussed.
