Neuroblastoma resection in an adult with a 10-year history of chest-mass shadow
- 24 Downloads
Neuroblastoma is rare in adults. We encountered this tumor in an asymptomatic 21-year-old man with a 10-year history of a mass-like shadow in chest radiography. Diagnosis was confirmed after resection, and 60 Gy radiation therapy was started. One year later, the patient has no clinical or radiological evidence of recurrence.
