Abstract

We report a case of neuroblastoma diagnosed after adrenal haemorrhage following a minor trauma in a thirteen-month-old boy. Minor trauma is not commonly described as a cause of AH in the literature. Therefore when no accepted cause for AH can be found in a young child below the age of 5 years, it is important to look for a neuroblastoma and discuss the necessity of surgical exploration.
