Stage 4S neuroblastoma is an unusual malignancy that has an excellent prognosis, except in young infants. A 2-month-old with 4S neuroblastoma complicated by massive hepatomegaly, managed by abdominal decompression surgery and a negative-pressure dressing system is presented. Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage also developed, which was treated with high-dose corticosteroids.
