Figure 14: Orbital metastases from neuroblastoma: A 7-year-old male child presented with right orbital swelling and generalized weakness. Fine-needle aspiration cytology from orbital swelling reported malignant round cell tumor. Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan was done to evaluate disease burden. Maximum intensity projection image (a) shows uptake in right orbital region (arrow) and extensive uptake in skeletal system. Bone marrow biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of metastatic neuroblastoma. Axial images (b and c) reveal hypermetabolic orbital mass eroding bony orbit. Coronal (d and e) images show the primary tumor (block arrow) in left paraspinal region of abdomen
