Neuroblastoma with primary pleural involvement: an unusual presentation.

Summary of "Neuroblastoma with primary pleural involvement: an unusual presentation."

Neuroblastomas are the most common neoplasms in infants. We report a 10-month-old who was diagnosed with thoracic neuroblastoma, with imaging showing unusual primary extension into the pleura, which might have an adverse staging and prognostic significance.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A rare neoplasm of large B-cells usually presenting as serious effusions without detectable tumor masses. The most common sites of involvement are the pleural, pericardial, and peritoneal cavities. It is associated with HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 8, most often occurring in the setting of immunodeficiency.

Presence of fluid in the pleural cavity resulting from excessive transudation or exudation from the pleural surfaces. It is a sign of disease and not a diagnosis in itself.

Presence of fluid in the PLEURAL CAVITY as a complication of malignant disease. Malignant pleural effusions often contain actual malignant cells.

An enlarged THYROID GLAND with at least 50% of the gland situated behind the STERNUM. It is an unusual presentation of an intrathoracic goiter. Substernal goiters frequently cause compression on the TRACHEA leading to deviation, narrowing, and respiratory symptoms.
