Abstract
Metastatic neuroblastoma to whole bones and brain generally has been considered incurable, but some reports have been published with good and partial response after initial chemotherapy followed by second-look operation. But the long term survival is dismal. Recently we experienced a case of metastatic neuroblastoma to brain without neurologic symptoms confirmed by computed tomograpy, who had multiple bony metastases including skull. The whole metastatic lesions to bones and brain have been clearing up after 3 cycles of multi-agent chemotherapy. So we suggest multi-agent high dose chemotherapy to the patients with poor prognosis.
Key Words: Neuroblastoma stage IV, Brain metastasis
