Mediastinal Nodular Ganglioneuroblastoma in an Eight-Year-Old ChildCorrespondence Address :
King Khalid University, Abha, Aseer, Saudi Arabia.
The nodular variant of Ganglioneuroblastoma (GNB) is a rare histologic subtype in a spectrum of neuroblastic tumours, which are common in children of less than four years, characterised by one or more macroscopic nodules of neuroblastoma within a ganglioneuromatous component. The histopathological classification of GNB is difficult as many classifications have come up to evaluate the prognosis of this rare tumour. Here a rare tumour in a relatively older child is reported and the relevance of detailed histopathological study is discuss.
