Özet

Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood which should be considered in the differential diagnosis of bone metastases and resultant pathological fractures, especially in children under 5 years old. We present an 11-month-old girl who presented with a pathological femur fracture and was diagnosed with metastatic neuroblastoma.
