Abstract

The treatment of neuroblastoma is based on the International Neuroblastoma Risk Group stratification considering life-threatening symptoms, image-defined risk factors (IDRFs), presence and site of metastases, biology, and histopathology. The authors present an infant with bilateral nonmetastatic adrenal neuroblastoma with favorable biology. Both tumors were resectable and without IDRFs, but bilateral resection was considered mutilating, so it was decided to operate one side only. The authors suggest considering bilaterality among IDRFs.
