BACKGROUND Ganglioneuroblastoma, nodular (GNBn) comprises one of the categories of peripheral neuroblastic tumors. [...] Key MethodRESULTS The review clarified and illustrated morphologic characteristics of classical GNBn and it variants. The diagnosis of GNBn was confirmed in 67 of 70 patients. There were 22 patients with GNBn in the FS and 45 patients with GNBn in the US.Expand

Neuroblastoma and Related Tumors
TLDR
5 peripheral neuroblastic tumors are presented and the prognostic significance and biologic relevance of the International Neuroblastoma Pathology Classification (INPC) are illustrated. Expand
Comparative retrospective study on the modalities of biopsying peripheral neuroblastic tumors: a report from the Italian Pediatric Surgical Oncology Group (GICOP)
TLDR
This multi‐center study is to evaluate the accuracy and safety of the various examined techniques and to determine whether a preferential procedure exists for peripheral neuroblastic tumors. Expand
Two cases of neuroblastoma comprising two distinct clones
We report two cases of high‐risk metastatic neuroblastoma, comprising two biologically distinct components in the adrenal primary tumor, which showed clear differences not only histologically butExpand

TLDR
Current biologic principles used to stratify risk and guide treatment algorithms are discussed and the role for surgical resection in neuroblastoma is reviewed, including the indications and timing of surgery within the greater treatment plan. Expand
Peripheral neuroblastic tumors of the adrenal gland: clinicopathologic features and important molecular alterations
Abstract Peripheral neuroblastic tumors are the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood and commonly present as an adrenal mass in a young child. This group of tumors is notable for wideExpand
Pediatric solid malignancies: neuroblastoma and Wilms' tumor.
TLDR
In Wilms' tumor, recent advances in the preoperative imaging have changed the operative approach to the routine contralateral kidney exploration. Expand

  • 2000
TLDR
Since the pathologic classification of NTs is complex and, according to Pediatric Oncology Group/Children’s Cancer Group (POG/CCG), prognostic categorization needs to be confirmed in each enrolled case for assigning the case to a specific protocol, a central review is required. Expand
Recommendations for modification of terminology of neuroblastic tumors and prognostic significance of Shimada classification. A clinicopathologic study of 213 cases from the pediatric oncology group
TLDR
The results showed that, even after stratification for age, POG stage, and primary site, there is a statistically significant difference in survival rate between favorable histologic and unfavorable histologic prognostic subgroups. Expand

TLDR
It is recommended that the term GNB should be used both clinically and pathologically to designate a distinctive subgroup of neuroblastic tumors, in contrast to the current use, which designates both NB and GNB. Expand
The International Neuroblastoma Pathology Classification.
TLDR
Peripheral neuroblastic tumours make a clinically and genomically complex disease, and offer one of the best models for analysing biologically and prognostically significant relationship between molecular/genomic alterations and their morphological manifestations. Expand
