Occult orbital neuroblastoma detected after administration of an antitumor vaccine OPHTHALMIC PLASTIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY Wilson, M. W., Moshfeghi, D. M., Haik, B. G., Haight, A. E., Hill, D. A., Davidoff, A. M., Rousseau, R. F., Bowman, L. C. 2003; 19 (1): 77-79


A 6-year-old girl with neuroblastoma developed swelling and erythema of her right upper eyelid following administration of an interleukin-2 and lymphotactin gene-modified allogeneic neuroblastoma cell vaccine. Computed tomography demonstrated a cystic lesion in the subperiosteal space. A biopsy of the mass showed necrotic neuroblastoma with minimal associated inflammation. To our knowledge, this case represents the first description of occult orbital metastases in a patient with neuroblastoma detected after administration of an antitumor vaccine.
