Neuroblastoma is a tumor derived from primitive cells of the sympathetic nervous system and is the most common solid tumor of childhood. The cause of neuroblastoma is unknown in most causes. Neuroblastoma usually occurs sporadically, but familial incidenes have been reported. It is primarily a tumor of abdominal origin from which it metastasizes to liver, lymph nodes, cranium, orbit and to other sites. The prognosis of this disease worsens as the age advances. We report a case of neuroblastoma in a 4 year old child who had B/L proptosis and irregular scalp swelling for 2-3 months with sub ocular petechiae and ecchymosis.
