Neuroblastoma in Children – In Treatment

In Treatment

Treatment for neuroblastoma in children varies significantly based on the risk for relapse classification of the disease. It is estimated that as many as 50-60% of children with high-risk neuroblastoma will eventually suffer a relapse. In children with intermediate- or low-risk neuroblastoma, relapses occur in only 5-15% of cases. If neuroblastoma is going to relapse at all, it usually does so within the first two years after the end of treatment. The likelihood of relapse continues to decline as more and more time passes after treatment is complete. Relapses occurring more than five years after the completion of therapy are rare. Treatment varies depending on the risk of relapse.
