abstract

  • Surgery alone suffices for INSS stage 1 neuroblastoma, even if biologic prognostic factors are unfavorable, microscopic disease remains after surgery, and tumor size is suggestive of "advanced-stage" status in other staging systems. Attempts to resect regionally confined neuroblastomas should take precedence over immediate use of cytotoxic therapy; otherwise, some patients may receive chemotherapy or radiotherapy unnecessarily.
