Abstract

The Italian Neuroblastoma Registry was investigated to describe 781 children with neuroblastoma experiencing tumour recurrence (424 progressions and 357 relapses). Ten-year overall survival (OS) was 6.8% (95% confidence interval (CI) 4.3-10.0) after progression and 14.4% (95% CI 10.5-18.9) after relapse. For both circumstances, OS was better for age at diagnosis
