Özet

Protein - losing enteropathy is often reported to be associated with malignancies such as Hodgkin's disease, non - Hodgkin's lymphoma, and mesenteric mesenchymoma, but it seldom complicates neuroblastoma. In this report, we describe a case of neuroblastoma presenting as protein - losing enteropathy in which neurohumoral mechanisms were involved. Key words: neuroblastoma, protein losing enteropathy
