Retroperitoneal neuroblastoma is a malignant tumor arising from sympathetic crest cells. Those derived from primitive neural crest cells are also known as primitive neuroblastoma tumors, including neuroblastoma, ganglion-cell-derived neuroblastoma, and ganglioneuroma-/ganglion-cell-derived neurofibromatosis subtypes. It is more common in infants and young children.
