Introduction: Iodine-123-meta-iodobenzylguanidine ((123)I-MIBG) imaging is currently a mainstay in the evaluation of many neuroendocrine tumors, especially neuroblastoma. (123)I-MIBG imaging has several limitations that can be overcome by the use of a PET agent.
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - Adrenal adenoma, adrenocortical carcinoma, pheochromocytoma and neuroblastoma are four discrete adrenal neoplasms that have the potential for functional activity.
Mutations in succinate dehydrogenase complex genes predispose to familial paraganglioma-pheochromocytoma syndrome (FPG) and gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). Here we describe cancer patients undergoing agnostic germline testing at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and found to harbor germline SDHA mutations.
BACKGROUND - Although nephrectomy rates are higher in children with neuroblastoma who have image-defined risk factors and/or high-risk disease who undergo resection prior to chemotherapy, no published data outline the key radiographic and clinical characteristics associated with nephrectomy.
•Neuroblastomas are tumors that arise from primitive sympathetic ganglion cells and are rarely seen in the pelvic region.•Neuroblastomas are the most common extracerebral solid tumors in children under the age of five years.
Neuroblastoma is an extracranial malignant tumor in children that is most often located in the adrenal gland and sympathetic ganglion. Here, we present a rare case of neuroblastoma originating from the urinary bladder.
