Neuroblastoma associated with persistent cloaca: A case report
Journal of Pediatric Surgery Case Reports
Cloaca; Neuroblastoma; Pediatric surgery
We describe the case of a 4-year-old female who was born with persistent cloaca and was subsequently diagnosed with posterior mediastinal neuroblastoma. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of neuroblastoma associated with a cloacal malformation. Neither neuroblastoma nor persistent cloaca has a high incidence among the general population. Therefore, we share this case as a rare association of conditions, as well as a potential area for further investigation. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
