Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The authors report on 3 infants below 6 months of age at diagnosis, with cervicomediastinal neuroblastoma who presented with life-threatening tracheal obstruction as an oncologic emergency. These neuroblastomas were characterized by favorable biology and chemoresistance. All initially grew rapidly before spontaneously regressing. Nerve injuries occurred in all patients as a result of tumor location. Maintenance of the airway until the expected spontaneous regression was a critical component in the management of these patients.
