Abstract


Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood. Sacrococcygeal neuroblastomas are reported to be rare. The authors report a case of a well-differentiated neuroblastoma case, detected in a 4-month-old male during routine pediatric evaluation and totally resected by surgery.
