Neuroblastoma is described in a 6-week-old baby presenting with a rapidly enlarging liver. Initial ultrasound examination of the abdomen could not characterize the tumour but a second examination showed a cyst in the superior pole of the kidney which at autopsy was found to be due to adrenal haemorrhage. The role of prenatal and postnatal ultrasonography in the diagnosis of neuroblastoma is emphasized. This tumour is more common in white children in the more industrialized countries, but even in developing countries clinicians should remain alert to its myriad manifestations.
