Epigastric Mass (Neuroblastoma)

2.6-year-old boy with a large epigastric and periumbilical mass. The work-up examinations showed a large neuroblastoma of the right adrenal gland. In contrast to the nephroblastoma the children are on an average younger (notice the age of the following cases). Often, general symptoms and signs are present, as well as symptoms of the gastrointestinal tract, and the mass crosses - as illustrated in the case report - more often the midline; therefore, a clinical assignment to one specific body side is often impossible.
