Ganglioneuroblastoma is a tumor belonging to the family of neuroblastic tumours. Those are tumors of the sympathetic nervous system. Ganglioneuroblastoma is very rare in adults. We report here a case of nodular ganglioneuroblastoma metastatic to the bone in a 31-year-old woman who consulted for pain in the right flank with, on the CT scan, a voluminous and heterogeneous tissue formation of lobulated contours. She underwent an adrenalectomy. A postoperative radiological assessment showed osteolytic lesions of the neck, left femoral metaphysis and bilateral iliac wings. The patient was put on palliative chemotherapy. She is currently under surveillance at 16 months of survival without new events. Ganglioneuroblastomas are considered to have intermediate metastatic potential.
