  • Neuroblastoma Involvement of the Falx Cerebri PEDIATRIC BLOOD & CANCER Quackenbush, K. E., Luna-Fineman, S., Magee, J. F., Gundogan, M., Golobi, M., Irie, T., Fernandez, C. V. 2009; 53 (7): 1337-1339


    Involvement of the falx cerebri in infants with stage 4 neuroblastoma is thought to be rare. The falx is derived from the neural crest and thus may be a location for primary neuroblastoma. Its propensity for metastasis is unknown. Management of neuroblastoma in this location is potentially challenging. We describe two children less than 18 months of age who were successfully managed with chemotherapy alone (without radiation or surgery) for falx involvement with neuroblastoma.
