Congenital neuroblastoma is rare, but is the most common malignant neoplasm of the foetus and the newborn. Although prognosis remains good in the newborn, in some cases it could lead to non-immune dropsy and intrauterine death. We report a case of congenital neuroblastoma accompanied by multiple metastases found at autopsy performed several days after death. Post-mortem examination revealed a cystic and haemorrhagic mass in the right adrenal and multiple tumour nodules in the lung. Hepatomegaly and placentomegaly were found.
