Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Neuroblastoma is a common malignancy in children, but rarely occurs in adults.

CASE REPORT:

We report the case of a 39-year-old woman who was treated for her fourth recurrence of a pelvic neuroblastoma.

CONCLUSIONS:

Because of the rarity of these tumors during adolescence and adulthood, little information is available on the clinical course of patients with neuroblastoma in this age group. Currently there is no standard treatment for adult patients with neuroblastoma. Surgical resection and chemotherapy seem to be best of choice.
