X chromosome aneuploidy has been identified as a potential risk factor for the development of neuroblastic tumors. We report a case of a 4-year-old girl with a 45,X karyotype incidentally discovered to have a large ganglioneuroblastoma on initial screening ultrasound. The incidence of these tumors in girls with Turner syndrome as well as their possible relationship to recombinant human growth hormone treatment is discussed.

Keywords: abdominal mass; ganglioneuroblastoma; neuroblastoma; Turner syndrome
