The posttraumatic stress disorder model has been used to describe some children's experience with cancer. This article presents the case of a 5-month-old infant in whom a neuroblastoma was diagnosed at age 2 weeks. His symptoms at the time of the psychiatric consultation were consistent with the criteria for traumatic stress disorder in infants from the ZERO TO THREE: Diagnostic Classification. This case study invites future clinical and research queries about traumatic stress disorder in infants with serious medical illnesses.
