Introduction: We report the case of a 4 years old girl who present
a cervico-thoracic ganglioneuroblastome with none response to
chemotherapy and radiotherapy
Case presentation: The girl was operated using the Cormier
Dartevelle-Grünenwald incision which helped to remove the tumor
completely with optimal control of noble elements. The follow up
was uneventful.
Conclusion: The Cormier Dartevelle-Grünenwald incision can be a
good option in case of big cervico-thoracic malignant tumors.
