Abstract

Neuroblastoma is one of the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood, and treatment of refractory neuroblastoma remains a significant clinical problem. Iodine-131-metaiodobenzylguanidine ((131)I-MIBG) therapy is an alternative approach to treat stage IV neuroblastoma. We report the palliative effect of (131)I-MIBG in three cases of relapsed neuroblastoma after autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. (131)I-MIBG is an effective and relatively nontoxic palliative therapy resulting in reduction of pain and prolongation of survival.
