Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood, and limited or complete surgical resection is performed in most cases. Anesthesia for these children can be challenging because of the size and location of the tumor, the secretion of vasoactive metabolites from the tumor, and because it involves major surgery in a potentially immunocompromised patient. Adequate preparation for these procedures can avoid intraoperative instability.
